OK, now we’re at the final match of the day – winner take all, loser goes home. Well, they both go home. But only one of them goes home with the trophy. Fifteen days, 280-or-so bouts in the top division, it all ends now. Barring a meteor strike that destroys the building, one of these two will be champion. Love it. The actual bout is mercilessly quick. Harumafuji hits hard, his head landing underneath Goeido’s chin. Goeido reacts by trying to pull down on the Yokozuna, but Harumafuji isn’t anywhere near overextended enough for this to work. Harumafuji is attached to Goeido’s torso like a leech, and he walks the Ozeki over the edge to disappointment. Standing outside the straw bales, Harumafuji pats Goeido’s back, a classy display of sympathy for the loser. But congratulations to the Yokozuna, who wins his ninth top-division championship!
