This is expected. The protection device supplies the title screen on the original. Some bootleg sets have that data in ROM instead, here they just didn't bother.

The code does actually read from an area where the logo could be found, and slapfighb3 even contains a ROM there, but it's confirmed there were PCBs without that ROM populated (and without any position for it) This slapfighb2 set is most likely a bootleg of a bootleg.

On real hardware, without the ROM there, the graphics for the title will either pull low or high depending on the PCB.

IOW it could be 'fixed' by copying the ROM from slapfighb3, but since slapfighb2 is confirmed not to have it, that would be a hack, this set doesn't have a valid logo on the PCB.
