    Look for NattoSumo on YouTube

    This is completely bizarre and quite disrespectful. I wouldn't be surprised if Tobizaru gets a sanction of some kind.

    Teru and Hak both 7-0

    Comment


      Man, that's probably the only chance Tobizaru's going to get to fight the GOAT, and that's how he chooses to use it? Smh.

      I seem to recall Enho trying something like that a few bashos ago and there was no sanction.

        There doesn't seem to be a chance of sanction. I thought it might be different because Yokozuna and musubi no ichiban

        They should just have Teru and Hak do a five bout series for the title. They are so far above the rest that it isn't funny.

          Would certainly make the video highlight reel a lot shorter.

          I think four competent Ozeki plus is the minimum for a good basho. Shodai obviously doesn;t qualify, but when they are at their best, Takakeisho and Asanoyama both do. Shame we've lost both of them.

          I watched a basho from 2016 a while ago when there were seven competent Ozeki pluses. Completely different experience. A golden age, I guess.

            The top two barely broke a sweat today

            10-0 with five days left

              Days off are good for the knees.

              I literally can't stop thinking about what a Teru-Hak bout will look like. Advantage Hakuho because of mobility, I think but...?

              Comment


                Especially hard to project just where they will be physically in four days.

                Hak seems to be getting a bit stronger as the basho goes on. Teru not so much.

                  Two more commanding victories, with Teru particularly impressive in just blowing Mitakeumi out of the ring

                    Both Titans 14-0 going onto the final day

                    First time since 2012 (when not yet Yokozuna Hakuho lost), only sixth in modern era.

                      Zensho yusho!

                      Can't seem to load an image (out of practice on this board) but the shot of Hakuho screaming after the win is one for the ages.

                          That's the one.

                            And the Yokozuna Deliberation Council unanimously recommends Terunofuji as the sport's 73rd Yokozuna. Rope achievement: unlocked!

                                Not taking any chances with his knees, I see

                                  Worst sumo wrestler ever retires.

                                  Genuine passing of an era...

                                    Now that smallcaps' appearances are sadly limited, this thread may be down to two posters, but Takakeisho looks very likely to lose his ozeki status after losing his first two bouts in this tournament

                                      The GOAT has officially retired

                                        Teru is 12-0 and has been doing things like this.

                                        Three days to go, including a likely final day bout with Takakeisho, who is 11-1.

                                          I watched half an hour of sumo in a hotel room in Belgium last week (on the telly, they weren't on my mattress) and it was very watchable. I hadn't realised that the bouts were so quick.
