Today, September 16, 2017, is a highly anticipated day for boxing fans including myself.
After years of waiting, Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin finally meet in a super fight for the middleweight world championship. This week, I had the honour of designing graphics for Golden Boy Promotions, a world-renowned promotional company spearheaded by Oscar De La Hoya, a legendary Hall of Famer who is a 10-time world champion. As for the design of the graphics, I was advised to follow the style of the fight’s official poster.
The graphics recount a brief history of the lineal middleweight title and they can be seen on Golden Boy Promotions‘ Instagram page, which has over 620,000 followers (as of September 2017). I must thank Gabriel Rivas from Golden Boy Promotions, as well as Round By Round Boxing, for providing me with such a priceless opportunity, which enabled me to display my work to thousands of fans as well as work with one of the best promotional companies in the world.
