May 2017, Day 5, Harumafuji v Daieisho

Daieisho is at his highest-ever rank of M3, and he’s experiencing the different level of competition up here in the rarefied air at the top of the division. Until this tournament, he’d never even competed against someone higher than M3, and now he’s had five days in a row of Sekiwake, Komusubi, Ozeki, and today his first match against a Yokozuna. So it’s no surprise that Harumafuji dispatches him handily, smashing head-to-head at the tachiai and securing a quick overhand left that puts Daieisho instantly into the dirt. Harumafuji stays perfect at 5-0, Daieisho drops to 0-5.
