May 2017, Day 9, Aoiyama v Hakuho

Hakuho rearranges Aoiyama’s face with a big left-handed slap at the tachiai, and gets the right-handed overarm grip shortly thereafter. Watch Hakuho’s right leg as he cranks on the belt throw – he keeps it in perfect position to disrupt Aoiyama’s legs and keep him off-balance. Once the throw is complete, Hakuho’s momentum carries him over and he lands on Aoiyama’s head. That makes it eighteen straight times Hakuho has beaten Aoiyama (not counting a no-contest loss when Hakuho dropped out due to injury). The Yokozuna stays perfect at 9-0, Aoiyama drops to 2-7.
