Yokozuna Kisenosato takes on the massive Aoiyama, and finds a way to win yet again. His right-handed overarm grip slips on and off and on again, but once it’s on for good the end is nigh for Aoiyama. Kisenosato also has the left-handed underarm grip, but there’s very little strength from that injured side of his body. So he gets his hips low and keeps his bulk close and under Aoiyama’s center of gravity, wearing down Aoiyama through attrition. I would not have guessed Kisenosato would have a 6-2 record after eight days, but the pressure and responsibility of the rank of Yokozuna seem to have elevated his game. He’s performing admirably.
