Against a smaller, clever wrestler like Sokokurai, Terunofuji is usually content to play the counter-attack game, holding his ground and waiting patiently for an opening without exposing himself to danger by being too aggressive. In my opinion, this is a waste of his size and talent, and earns him just enough wins to keep his rank. It’s also not very exciting. But today I like what Terunofuji does – he moves forward at the tachiai looking for the overarm grip on the left side, and hesitates for just a moment before continuing the attack. With only one hand on the belt, Terunofuji lifts Sokokurai completely off the ground and sets him down right at the ring’s edge. Yorikiri win for the Ozeki.
