May 2017, Day 12, Ishiura v Ikioi

Both Ishiura and Ura, two of the smaller wrestlers in the top division, have been using katasukashi (under-shoulder swing down) to good effect against taller opponents, pulling them down and forward which either results in the opponent falling down or being off-balance. Ishiura gets really good leverage on Ikioi today, and Ikioi ends up rolling  across the dohyo. Ikioi already has his winning record of 8-4, and Ishiura pulls even at 6-6.
