March 2017, Day 4, Hakuho v Ikioi

It’s chaos in the Yokozuna ranks as Hakuho loses again! Ikioi is totally pumped up before the bout – watch how he prepares himself for battle. After a stalemate at the tachiai, Ikioi charges forward and somehow pushes Hakuho the length of the dohyo. Hakuho’s last ditch effort to jump and twist and push down Ikioi fails, and the Yokozuna goes crashing into the crowd. Yoritaoshi (front crush out) upset win for Ikioi. A long conference of the judges confirms the ref’s initial decision.
