May 2017, Day 13, Harumafuji v Takayasu

Takayasu proves his mettle against Harumafuji, recovering nicely after whiffing on an overarm throw that lets the Yokozuna get behind him. Spinning back to face Harumafuji just in time to absorb a hand to the throat, Takayasu holds his ground before slapping down hard just as Harumafuji charges. The Yokozuna tumbles off the dohyo and Takayasu remains standing. This brings to three the number of wrestlers at 11-2 (Harumafuji, Terunofuji, and Takayasu), the only men still with a chance to deny Hakuho his 38th championship.
