May 2017, Day 1, Kisenosato v Yoshikaze

Yokozuna Kisenosato looks still to be suffering from the left chest injury that nearly cost him the championship last tournament. In today’s bout against Yoshikaze, he doesn’t appear to be able to muster any strength from his left side, and Yoshikaze easily walks him out. I’d wager Kisenosato doesn’t finish out the tournament. He’s probably feeling the pressure of his new Yokozuna rank, and wants to tough it out, but he’d be better off taking the time to properly heal.
