January 2017, Day 7, Hokutofuji v Chiyonokuni

Hokotofuji starts off today much like he did yesterday against Takanoiwa – he drives his opponent to the edge of the ring, using a stiff arm to the chin to keep Chiyonokuni bending backwards and upright. But Chiyonokuni’s extra stretching sessions have paid off, and he bends his torso out of the way while pushing on Hokutofuji’s arm to slip out the side and leave Hokotufuji leaning against thin air. Pretty slick.
