November 2016, Day 7, Sokokurai v Gagamaru

After a strong 5-0 start, Sokokurai has dropped two in a row. Today he runs into Gagamaru, who, if he used his bulk like this more consistently, would be much more of a threat in the top division. Gagamaru wraps up the smaller Sokokurai and prevents him from sneaking around the side, where he could do real damage. Then it’s a simple matter of staying centered and marching solidly to the edge. Gagamaru earns his third win of the tournament.
