    Tamashoho vs Atamifuji: day 14 Kyushu 2021 (last bout of the basho for both) day 1 Hatsu 2022 (first bout of the basho for both) Have two opponents (in the lower divisions) ever faced each other in consecutive matches, excluding playoffs?

    Kyushu 2021 discussion

    Just wondering: if the gyoji had noticed the hairpull in the beginning of the bout, I suppose he could have immediately stopped the match and declare Takakeisho the winner? Has such a thing ever happened before? I was under the impression they only call hansoku when a bout is allready over and when the hansoku directly lead to your opponent falling down or out

    Ichinojo was robbed. The “hairpull” had no influence on the outcome of the bout

    With the promotion of Terunofuji guaranteed, Isegahama will be able to perform his kanreki-dohyo-iri flanked by his two yokozuna disciples

    Nagoya Basho 2021

    Haru 1943 had 3 undefeated yokozuna after day 12. And the final scores of all 4 yokozuna were amazing too: 15-0, 14-1, 13-2 and 12-3 (+ kyujo on day 15!)
