January 2017, Day 14, Takakeisho v Daieisho

J2 Daieisho has been bouncing around between the top of the Juryo division and the bottom of the Makuuchi division for about a year and a half. With an 11-3 record so far, it looks like he’ll be back up in Makuuchi next tournament. Today his bout with M12 Takakeisho turns into an old-fashioned brawl, each man shoving hard at the other’s head and taking a tour of the entire ring. Daieisho gets backed up to the straw bales where he plants his feet and lands the decisive blow on Takakeisho’s chin, sending him spinning down to the clay. Takakeisho falls to 6-8.
