The Thai boxing scene has changed a lot over recent years and the growth of WP Boxing and The Fighter have added an almost professional feel to the events, to differentiate from the more typical out doors Thai shows. They haven't just had a different feel in terms of staging, but also promotion, and they've given us more traditional posters, like this one for the next show under "The Fighter" banner. It's clean, crisp and professional looking. Basic, but clear.
One thing we would like to see Thai posters begin to do, especially if they are going with these cleaner designs, is to add the "English" versions of fighters names, just to make it easier to try and get Western fans interest in some of these bouts. Such as this one featuring Arnon Yupang defending his WBA Asia South Featherweight title.
To begin March we see TL Boxing Promotions kick off their year with their first show of 2020 and their first show since securing a recent deal with Thairath. The card they begin the year with will see a double header as Dennapa Kianiwat, now fighting as Dennapa Trabaihor, takes on Jeny Boy Buca for the WBA Asia Flyweight title and Jomvo Korsaklamphun battling Adrian Lerasan for the WBA Asia Super Flyweight title. The poster is simple but effective. It's just a shame the TV channel, "Thairath TV" is the same damn colour as the background! Very bizarre issue.
On October 26th Thai fans tuning in to One HD will get the chance to see the next show in The Fighter series. The poster doesn't scream boxing to us, though it is rather ye catching poster. A bit of a strange one, that sort of feels incomplete and lacking in fighters.
Thailand is mixing things up in regards to which channels are showing boxing, and which promoters are doing what, one thing that is consistent however is that their posters are really uninspired, and that's the case here with what is essentially a glorified bout listing for the upcoming "The Fighter", show.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
