The Strongest Korakuen
On October 22nd Japanese fans get one of their most significant domestic shows of the year, The Strongest Korakuen. The show decides a number of Japanese mandatory challengers for the following year and features several intriguing bouts, even if the card is a rather small one with only 5 bouts listed at the moment. The poster features the 10 fighters and the Japanese title, that they are all essentially trying to earn a shot at for next year. It's a simple but effective poster that says everything you need to know about the show.
The Strongest Korakuen Million Match
To kick off November we get a brilliant return to the Strongest Korakuen with a special million yen bonus up for grabs for the MVP of the show. The card features 4 main bouts with all 8 men, including former champions like Nihito Arakawa, Akinori Watanabe, Kentaro Masuda and Masayuki Kuroda, looking to earn a shot at a Japanese title.
The poster features those 4 bouts and the 8 men included in them as well as the title of the show and the Japanese title. It's not an amazing poster but it is one that has plenty of notable faces on it and does look rather exciting without being amazing.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
