May 2017, Day 10, Kisenosato v Kotoshogiku

Yokozuna Kisenosato appears to have run out of steam, losing his second bout in a row and fourth of the tournament to former Ozeki Kotoshogiku who steamrolls him with a solid effort. ‘Giku stays alive in his hopes for a winning record, staving off the makekoshi and holding fast at 3-7. Kisenosato’s chances of a winning record look dire – in the remaining five days he’ll have to face Hakuho, Harumafuji, Goeido, Terunofuji, and Tamawashi, hoping for at least two wins against that intimidating bunch. Yikes.
