Knockout Kings II
Less than a year on for the Golden Boy Promotion's original "Knockout Kings" show they continue the theme with "Knockout Kings II".
The original "Knockout Kings" featured Saul Alvarez v Josesito Lopez, Marcos Maidana v Jesus Soto Karass, Daniel Ponce De Leon v Jhonny Gonzalez and Leo Santa Cruz vs. Eric Morel.
Of the 8 men in the original "Knockout Kings" only one, Jesus Soto Karass returns for part II. For us however the interest is in Japanese Nihito Arakawa who will attempt to claim the WBC "interim" Lightweight title as he takes on Omar Figueroa.
On the poster Arakawa is sadly absent however on the Banner (see below) he is there. Sure it's the writing that takes up most of the space whilst the images of American Andre Berto and Mexican Soto Karass catch the eye but if you look carefully however Arakawa is featured in the bottom corner under Soto Karass.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
