May 2017, Day 5, Hokutofuji v Takakeisho

Takakeisho looks great on Day 5 against Hokutofuji, standing up to his opponent’s fierce attack with solid hips and good lateral movement. He sets up Hokutofuji for the fall,  using a great matador move after some hard shoving to force Hokutofuji to push back. At 4-1 after five days, this is Takakeisho’s best start to a top-division tournament. Hokutofuji falls to 3-2.
