May 2017, Day 3, Yutakayama v Chiyotairyu

Yutakayama started off his career with seven straight winning records (plus two lower-division championships), so now his eighth tournament in professional sumo is also his first in the top Makuuchi division. Now we’ll see if the 23-year-old is ready for the high level of competition. On Day 3, Chiyotairyu stuns him with a solid tachiai that knocks him backwards, and he can’t recover. Yutakayama falls to 1-2, and Chiyotairyu improves to 2-1.
