May 2017, Day 9, Kisenosato v Tochiozan

Nothing fancy today, just Tochiozan getting both arms underneath Yokozuna Kisenosato’s right off the bat. Kisenosato can’t prevent Tochiozan from getting low and backing him up to the edge. If Kisenosato wants to compensate for his weak left side, he can’t let his opponent get both arms inside like that. Kise’s still doing ok at 6-3, while Tochiozan picks up another kinboshi (gold star victory over a Yokozuna from M1 or lower) and improves to 5-4.
