May 2016, Day 10, Hakuho v Terunofuji

This one has the feeling of inevitability. Terunofuji, having a terrible tournament, against Hakuho, having another great one. Hakuho again uses a huge right shoulder hit at the tachiai to put his opponent off balance, before wrapping up Terunofuji and ushering him out to his eighth loss. Terunofuji will be kadoban next tournament, meaning he has one chance to secure a winning record before losing his Ozeki status. Hakuho and Kisenosato stand atop the leaderboard with no losses.
