September 2016, Day 14, Takanoiwa v Yoshikaze

Yoshikaze already has a losing record, but that doesn’t stop him from taking it to Takanoiwa. The fewer losses you have, the smaller your demotion next tournament, so there’s always motivation until the last day. When Yoshikaze gets underneath Takanoiwa’s left arm, Takanoiwa tries to pull off an armlock throw. But Yoshikaze reverses the maneuver and cranks on Takanoiwa’s shoulder, taking advantage of Takanoiwa’s bent posture to topple him to the ground with a beltless arm throw (sukuinage).
