May 2017, Day 11, Terunofuji v Aoiyama

Ozeki Terunofuji comes out on top against Aoiyama, ending things with a nice uwatenage (overarm throw) that he executes from the left side. Aoiyama tries to switch his left arm inside while pulling with a right-handed underarm belt grip, but all he does is put himself off-balance and give Terunofuji the opening for a throw of his own. The Ozeki stays two losses behind the tournament leader, tied with four other wrestlers at 9-2. Aoiyama falls to 2-9.
