May 2017, Day 10, Mitakeumi v Chiyonokuni

Mitakeumi finally stops a slide of six straight losses, dominating Chiyonokuni with a determined defense that negates Chiyonokuni’s attacks, and finishing confidently without overextending himself. Mitakeumi has one more tough test against Yokozuna Harumafuji tomorrow, and then his schedule should ease up a bit for the last few days of the tournament. Currently at 4-6, he’s in danger of a losing record and demotion from the rank of Komusubi.
