January 2017, Day 9, Kakuryu v Ikioi

Upset follows upset, with both Yokozuna losing on Day 9. Ikioi plays spoiler against Kakuryu, showing a fearless tachiai, charging right into the chest of the Yokozuna and relentlessly pressing the attack. Kakuryu goes over the edge and down to the floor below, losing for the fourth time in nine days. Ikioi stays tied for second place at 7-2 with Yokozuna Hakuho, M8 Hokutofuji, M10 Sokokurai, and M13 Ichinojo. My guess is those numbers will thin out tomorrow.
