May 2017, Day 14, Harumafuji v Goeido

After a thundering tachiai from both men sends vibrations through the dohyo, Goeido takes over and pushes Harumafuji all the way to the other side of the ring. Harumafuji gets his foot planted in the cut-out tokudawara and escapes to the side, but when he charges forward he comes in too low and Goeido slaps him down. It’s all academic as Hakuho has already clinched the championship, but Goeido earns his ninth win of the tournament, a good sign after a losing record last time out. Harumafuji, finishing the day at 11-3, will go up against fellow Yokozuna Hakuho tomorrow on the last day.
