    Preparations of the Y/O- Haru 2020

    And let's not forget Kisenosato that still crushes poor Takayasu in keiko.

    Goeido to Retire

    Kisenosato was NEVER a part of the OBSC.

    Dangerously close to the third rail...

    The athletes in ancient Greek Olympics were buck naked, as a sign of innocence and proof they had nothing to hide. Nudity was one of the main reasons for the demise of Ancient Olympics, with the advent of Christianity.

    Hakuho’s father just passed away.

    RIP. It also means that Hakuho is free to seek the Japanese citizenship.

    Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Don't forget guys that Tochinoshin could actually hit the gym the last few months because he is mostly healthy after a very long time.

    Yes, he had injured his arm and played FOOTball with kids for charity if I remember well...

    Rikishi Status Aki 2017 - Day 15 no changes

    Close to zero. He returned for a cheap victory!

    Very true. Nevertheless, you will have fun watching Karaev vs Musashi in K-1WORLD GP2005, readily available on Youtube! You will remember me

    So I will sound stupid and shallow just to point out that a Japanese Yokozuna should have the right to take all the time in the world to heal properly but a Mongolian Yokozuna should not be missing too many fights!

    Basho Talk - Nagoya 2017 (SPOILERS)

    Well there was certainly an ozeki that got a special title, that of a yokozuna, a couple of centuries ago!

    Times We've got close to 5+ Yokozunae

    And since we are fantasizing, why not Ura? I'm a fan!

    January Ura Compilation

    Ura has three characteristics that could carry him a long way: - very strong legs - exceptional balance - technique that rivals Harumafuji's What he lacks is experience and I'm afraid we will see a short career because of injuries. Otherwise his potential is unlimited and not only to be a Makuuchi mainstay.

    Basho Talk - Hatsu Basho 2017 ** (SPOILERS)

    I remember when Kotooshu got his yusho that there was a discussion whether or not he would deserve the tsuna if he won a second one immediately after that. The general consensus was that there was no other choice if and only if the second one was zensho and the argument was his very bad sumo in the previous year. Now we have an ozeki with the best record in 2016 and we are still discussing whether he deserves to become a yokozuna. We choose to take only the previous tournament, consider a jun-yusho as negative to cry out loud, and ignore his performance before that. I see a major inconsistency here. We either give normally more emphasis on the last two tournaments and take into consideration the previous performance, or we ignore altogether everything before the last two tournaments. We cannot have it both ways. Ignoring the previous good performance but emphasizing the previous bad performance. Kisenosato well deserves to become a yokozuna and I dare a prediction: we will see several yushos after this one.

    Kadoban watch - Hatsu Basho 2017

    Regardless the record, an ozeki can be demoted only to sekiwake rank.
