March 2017, Day 15, Harumafuji v Kakuryu

Odd finish to the tournament for two Yokozunas. The bout is a great one right up until the very end, a real tactical struggle that sees both men alternately attack and defend, neither able to finish off the other. Harumafuji makes one mighty charge, driving Kakuryu backwards, but Kakuryu fights back and pushes the other way. I can’t tell if Harumafuji hurts himself, or if he gets tripped up on the ref who can’t get out of the way fast enough, but he appears to stop trying on his way out of the ring. Very un-Harumafuji-like. The two Yokozuna both finish with a 10-5 record.
