This coming Saturday features a female world title double header and, as you can tell from the poster, the females are the stars. The bouts, which will see veteran Nao Ikeyama defending her WBO Atomweight title against former foe Masae Akitaya and a bout for the vacant WBO female Minimumweight title bout between Gretchen Abaniel and Kumiko Seeser Ikehara, may not appear to international fans but both looking very interesting.
As for the poster it's great that the female's are given the attention they deserve, and not just in the main event but also in one of the support bouts. Sadly however the poster sort of looks like it's just the fighters thrown on in front of a dull and uninspired misty background. The information and fighters are there, and that's great, but it could certainly have been a better poster than it is.

Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
