Watch this space or check out the results I posted on Facebook and on the International Sumo Community page. Or if someone can please take the initiative to share it that would be much appreciated as I have to work out my strategy to keep my face intact from Goergiev Stiliyans BUL wild and controversial slapping.

Stilyan BUL vs Kawaguch from Japan.  Feel free to comment on this one (if you can see it in your country- if not it is in one of the videos above).His techniques and tantrums have become a regular feature at Sumo Championships yet the judges never follow the rules and let him go again.He invariably gets his just deserts.Some say its just his passion and he doesn't realise what he is doing but he has been doing exactly the same thing for many years and is too experienced. It ads a lot of colour to an event that's for sure. He is a great bloke, a brilliant coach and technician. I was just grateful that he was kind to me in our bout.

    Sumo is a very good thing. Though better with affordable video.

This is a bit of a weird thread revival, but anyway...I've just read that WCG lightweight champion Kazuki Ura may be gracing the pro ranks in a year; he's been introduced to Takasago-beya and took part in asageiko recently. He'll be a senior at Kwansei Gakuin University this year. In addition to the WCG title he has also featured in the late stages (last 16) of the All-Japan tournament and been runner-up at two college circuit tourneys despite clocking in at just 171 cm / 85 kg.

Thanks Asashosakari seki,

That's great news. He is tiny so I'm not sure if he even fills out the full 85kgs but its all muscle. He is very fast and dynamic and warms up doing backflips and breakdancing.

Pretty brave move so I hope we could be looking at the next Mainoumi (after Ishiura of course)

I can't remember if his bout with Naranbat is in the video above .It was hilarious.  Nara couldn't really catch him for a while but was smart enough to know how dangerous the little cobra can be.
