May 2016, Day 8, Sokokurai v Tamawashi

Sokokurai fights through Tamawashi’s strong hand on his throat and pushes the larger wrestler back to the edge, where he gropes for an underhand grip on the right side. Tamawashi is forced to release his grip on Sokokurai’s throat in order to defend his belt, and now all his attention is focused on Sokokurai’s right arm. Sokokurai uses the distraction to pull off a beautiful left-handed sukuinage (beltless arm throw).
