March 2017, Day 4, Kotoshogiku v Kakuryu

Go go ‘Giku! After a loss yesterday Kotoshogiku catches his second wind, beating his second Yokozuna of the tournament. He pushes Kakuryu off the line at the tachiai after a mighty contest of strength, and has the Yokozuna backed up to the edge of the ring. Kakuryu pushes back hard to keep from going out, and Kotoshogiku uses perfect timing (if not a super-clean technique) to dump the Yokozuna with a left-side sukuinage (beltless arm throw).
