January 2017, Day 15, Hakuho v Kisenosato

Kisenosato caps off his first-ever tournament championship with a victory over Yokozuna Hakuho, finishing with a spectacular 14-1 record. Hakuho looks overaggressive and out of control, for him, pushing as hard as he can but also leaning waaaay too far forward. Kisenosato, desperate at the edge of the ring, does the only thing he can and manages to slip sideways with a left-handed sukuinage (beltless arm throw). Hakuho rolls to the floor. The crowd goes wild. Pillows take flight. Kisenosato gets a massive stack of cash. Congratulations, Kisenosato!!!
