March 2017, Day 13, Kagayaki v Tochinoshin

Tochinoshin’s lower body is weak from injury, so he doesn’t have a lot of power moving forward. But he compensates nicely with decent lateral movement, which is enough to defeat an opponent like Kagayaki. Tochinoshin plays matador at the edge, using good ring sense to keep his feet in while Kagayaki spirals off the dohyo to the floor below. Tochinoshin falls hard too, but sacrificing the body gets him the win. Kagayaki loses for the eighth time, while Tochinoshin is still alive at 6-7.
