January 2017, Day 14, Osunaarashi v Ishiura

Osunaarashi has missed parts of the past three consecutive tournaments due to one injury or another, and it looks like he still hasn’t recovered. After a promising 3-0 start, he’s now dropped eleven bouts in a row this tournament, and it seems like he’s got no strength in his lower half. When Ishiura sidesteps him at the tachiai, he can’t stop his forward momentum and ends up standing on the wrong side of the tawara. Ishiura, already with eight losses and trying to prevent too severe a demotion next tournament, picks up his sixth win.
