March 2017, Day 5, Hakuho v Mitakeumi

Hakuho drops out of the March Tournament in Osaka on Day 5, giving a fusensho (victory without a fight) to Mitakeumi, who can use the gift and improves to 3-2. Hakuho has re-injured the ligament in his right big toe that he had surgery on last September, and suffered an injury to a muscle in his right thigh. This continues the streak of tournaments with four Yokozuna dating back to July of 1999, with not a single tournament seeing all four Yokozuna complete all fifteen days.
