May 2017, Day 8, Hokutofuji v Takarafuji

Fantastic epic battle between these two evenly matched wrestlers in their third-ever head-to-head meeting. Takarafuji won the first two, but Hokutofuji gets one back today with a gutsy performance, surviving several scares at the edge of the ring. He uses his left foot against the tawara well, and a tenuous right-handed belt grip to execute the come-from-behind victory. Hokutofuji earns his sixth win, and Takarafuji loses for the fifth time.
