May 2017, Day 2, Takayasu v Goeido

A lot of subtext behind this bout. The old guard, Ozeki Goeido, needing just a winning record this tournament to preserve his rank. The new(ish) guy, Takayasu, looking for a promotion to the rank of Ozeki if he can get at least ten wins. And it’s Takayasu who appears more motivated, blasting Goeido off the line with a massive tachiai that sends him reeling. The rest is academic, and it’s over a few thrusts and steps later.
