May 2017, Day 12, Terunofuji v Shodai

Ozeki Terunofuji needs all the techniques in his skillset to overcome the shifting defenses of Shodai. Shodai does well to recover from a brutal armlock throw and some fierce nodowa (throat push) and tsuppari slaps, but ends up in an headlock before somehow letting Terunofuji (not the most mobile of wrestlers) end up behind him. Terunofuji pushes out Shodai from behind for the okuridashi win, improving to 10-2 and still in championship contention. Shodai has a winning record of 8-5.
