May 2017, Day 7, Chiyoshoma v Takayasu

Takayasu gets back on track after his first loss yesterday, sending Chiyoshoma down to the clay with a solid tachiai followed by a sharp right hand to the ribs. Chiyoshoma’s roll isn’t some kind of soccer flop – sumo wrestlers practice rolling when they know they’re going down, as it protects them from injury better than a hard fall.
