March 2017, Day 7, Sokokurai v Takayasu

Takayasu’s got something special going on at the tachiai. He’s been blowing everyone off the line with his initial charge, and it sets up his straight-forward style of sumo nicely. Once he has the center of the ring he’s in charge. Today Sokokurai can’t get anything going, and soon finds himself standing on the wrong side of the tawara. Takayasu stays perfect at 7-0, tied with Yokozuna Kisenosato for the tournament lead.
