Everything’s going Kotoshogiku’s way right up until the very end. He has a good tachiai, gets chest-to-chest with Goeido where he wants to be, and starts frog-hopping the Ozeki back towards the edge. But two or three hops in and Goeido, with perfect timing, jabs a right hand into Kotoshogiku’s left side while he’s on the upthrust. Kotoshogiku loses his base and topples to the ground. Ozeki Goeido improves to 5-2, while Kotoshogiku falls to 1-6.
