November 2015, Day 15, Shohozan v Aminishiki

In the end, nothing happened the way I thought it might. But that’s sports for you. Shohozan runs into wily veteran Aminishiki, who is in need of his eighth win on the last day. Aminishiki takes advantage of Shohozan’s low position on the tachiai and wins with sokubiotoshi (head chop down). Ami-chan gets his kachi-koshi, and Shohozan finishes with a most excellent 12-3 record, one loss too many to be in the picture for the championship. Shohozan also receives the Fighting Spirit Prize, one of the three special prizes awarded to deserving wrestlers at the end of the tournament.
