May 2017, Day 3, Toyohibiki v Onosho

Onosho has risen steadily up the ranks since entering sumo at 16 years old. He floundered a little bit in the Juryo division before putting together enough wins to earn his promotion to the top Makuuchi division this tournament at the age of 20. Veteran Toyohibiki provides a good test on Day 3, but Onosho is able to absorb the strong tachiai and plow forward through a strong series of slaps from his opponent. He shows solid, low hips and careful footwork on his way to dumping Toyohibiki off the dohyo onto his butt. Onosho finishes the day at 2-1, Toyohibiki at 1-2.
