May 2017, Day 13, Shohozan v Yutakayama

Shohozan pops Yutakayama a few times in the face to get his attention, but the tide of the bout really turns when Shohozan goes for the belt. With both arms around Yutakayama’s waist, Shohozan presses forward despite a last-ditch effort from Yutakayama to shrug him off to the side. Shohozan wins by yoritaoshi, or front crush out. If he’d had more solid performances like this earlier in the tournament, Shohozan might not be sitting on a losing record of 5-8. Yutakayama drops his eleventh loss.
