March 2017, Day 2, Tochinoshin v Ishiura

Tochinoshin’s fighting a nagging knee injury, and he hasn’t been this low in the rankings for a couple of years. But Ishiura doesn’t cut him any slack, and runs circles around the larger wrestler, fighting off his thrusting attack with good deflections and constantly working for the belt. Ishiura finally grabs onto Tochinoshin’s arm and uses it as a lever to get behind him, ushering him out for the okuridashi (rear push out) win.
