May 2017, Day 13, Hokutofuji v Onosho

Hokutofuji and Onosho smash together at the tachiai, Hokutofuji getting both hands underneath and Onosho backpedaling until his heels hit the tawara, where he tries to pull Hokutofuji down and past him. But both men go crashing to the floor, and even Ura seated ringside perks up to see who won, unable to maintain the usual stoic indifferent composure of wrestlers waiting their turn. The judges want to talk it over, and they determine that the two hit the ground at the same time, and call for a rematch. The do-over goes better for Onosho this time, as he slaps down Hokutofuji who is unable to keep from falling down. Onosho has an excellent record of 9-4 in his first top-division tournament. Hokutofuji falls to 8-5.
