November 2016, Day 2, Ikioi v Takanoiwa

Ikioi’s so polite. He’s strong in the ring – meeting Takanoiwa with a strong upper arm to the face at the tachiai, absorbing Takanoiwa’s massive countering face-slap, and then driving Takanoiwa off the dohyo with little fuss. But when he lands almost on top of the ring judge, he quickly checks to make sure he’s ok and shows the deferential single-handed apology-chop. Nice guy.
