Korean show "Warriors Invitational 005" has been scheduled and rescheduled a few times in 2019, with the show now expected to take place on October 9th. With the rescheduling their has been changes to the card and now we've ended up with the revised poster above. The main selling point is an OPBF title fight between Rikki Naito and Gyu Beom Jeon but the poster also looks to sell the show on two supporting bouts, both for KBF titles. It's simple, effective, but a touch underwhelming.
On September 5th we'll see OPBF Light Welterweight champion Rikki Naito travel to Korea, to attempt to break a curse that struck his father several times and pick up a win on the Korean peninsula. The Japanese fighter will be defending his title against Gyu Beon Jeon. The poster for the bout features the two men along with the name of the show the date and the OPBF title. It's simple, yet still rather striking and sharp. A decent if basic design.
On May 6th we get the next in the Warriors Invitational cards from Korea. At the moment the details are limited, but the bit talking point for us is an excellent match up between Ye Joon Kim and Ryo Kosaka, who will fight for the WBA Asia Super Bantamweight title. The poster is nothing special, and we've yet to see any major Korean site give a bout listing, but it does look sharp and the card is likely to be pretty interesting, as most in the Warriors Invitational have been.
Attention turns to Korea on March 3rd for the next in the "Warriors Invitational" shows. The card isn't massive, but does have a couple of KBF title fights on, including a tasty looking bout between In Duck Seo and Heuk San Lee, as well as the next bout in the career of Ye Joon Kim. The bout has two different posters. One for the main event and one for the overall card. Both have a similar theme, and whilst it's not an amazing poster, it is a pretty good one.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
