    Maybe Tatsunami-oyakata.

    2019 Aki Basho Discussion (spoiler alert!)

    I have no idea how they would weigh the ozekiwake factor in Takakeisho's case - if that would give him an edge over Hakuho's sekiwake near-yusho. I think he would have to win outright - no ties that force a playoff match, and no so-called soft 11 or 12 win yusho to even get a discussion started. He doesn't do that, the scant historical precedent holds and he'll need to make it three in a row if he wants to debut as a yokozuna in his "hometown" basho.

    You'll note I said discuss it. That's no guarantee they'll choose to promote. As Jakusotsu pointed out, it would be a first and it is anyone's guess. The speculation will be good fun.

    If both consecutive yusho are strong, say 13-2 & 14-1, then you'd think somebody would be inclined to discuss it. If one yusho is just 11 or 12 wins, then a wait and see attitude is far more likely.

    The desire to have a Japanese yokozuna is strong...

    He has managed to bounce between the joi and mid-makuuchi since losing rank as ozeki two and a half years ago. He even had a makikoshi at M8 a year ago, yet managed to get all the way back to M1for Natsu this year. He's likely to be around another year or two.

    At 2-3, Hoshoryu can't afford another loss if he wants a shot at juryo next basho...
