    Tochinoshin vs Baruto who is stronger

    On balance I'd say Baruto would have the edge - if both men were at their peak. How about adding ex-Kirishima into the mix, the ultimate tsuridashi specialist (and utchari of course)? I also remember Chiyonofuji lifting Mitoizumi out in September 1989 which was quite a feat. Swami

    Aurora breaks the record and Aki weigh-in

    He did seem especially bad these last couple of tournaments, as soon as he made the first step onto the dohyo he lost his footing immediately. Surely this is a lesson to any new recruit coming in, in terms of not how to do it. Swami

    If this is indeed correct surely someone needs to take him in hand and urgently get him on a diet. Swami

    Yes, it seemed he had stayed at 199kg forever. He's another one whose weight seems to have got the better of him. Swami

    I think for his own welfare now his oyakata or someone may have to make the call for him to stop. Swami

    He should quit straight away and try to start losing weight immediately. The statement "reaching 300kgs is cool" is terrible, if that is what his main aspiration is. In addition, for his size, he has remarkably little power. Swami

    At what point will he stop and think - is there any point in continuing? Even getting back to the lower levels of Makushita would be a major achievement for him at present. Konishiki at his heaviest lost a lot of his mobility but never looked anywhere near as ungainly as Orora. Swami
