May 2016, Day 11, Yoshikaze v Terunofuji

Yoshikaze plays giant-killer today against Ozeki Terunofuji. He gets backed up at the tachiai but manages to get both hands underneath the taller wrestler’s arms and reverse the position. Terunofuji’s posture is way too upright, but he fights off Yoshikaze at the edge. Yoshikaze pushes him all the way across the dohyo, and when Terunofuji plants his feet to push back Yoshikaze dumps him with a well-timed sukuinage (beltless arm throw).
