Chiyotairyu wins this on the tachiai. His initial charge, throwing a big left shoulder to the head, completely blows Takanoiwa off the line. A few more thrusts keep Takanoiwa from grabbing onto the belt to stop his backwards momentum. Then a two-handed shove from Chiyotairyu forces Takanoiwa to lean in, perfectly setting up the hikiotoshi (hand pull down) technique. Takanoiwa loses only his second bout of the tournament, dropping out of the lead and into a four-way tie for second place.
