    Rikishi Status - 2020 November Basho

    What would he do? He doesn't strike me as somebody wanting to stay in the NSK or even having said that.

  10. I think what he means that those two have a chance of getting their 3rd yusho while not ranked at ozeki. No one has won a third yusho while not ranked at ozeki.

  15. We could be looking at Shodai being a Musashimaru type, surging late while remaining relatively injury free from his rise to the top. Musashi had his ups and downs, but consistently KK'd. And did not miss a career bout until he made yokozuna, even after getting up there almost broke a kachi-koshi record that was set by Kitanoumi.
  16. That is true and also a reflection of our latest Japanese yokozuna. The man would be on fire but he could "fizzle" right in the home stretch. The number of times he would be ahead in the basho yet lose out to Hakuho or somebody else is up there too.
  17. I have to disagree with the one part of your statement. A 12-3 debut followed by a 10-5 is hardly what I would call fizzling out. No one can expect anybody to be the next Taiho, Kitanoumi or Hakuho. And there are those who sat at the ozeki rank a while before eventually making it to the top. When he starts turning in Miyabiyama type performances, then I would start getting worried.

    Preparations of the Y/O- November 2020

    Kakuryu just has not been the same since Sakahoko died and the stable folded. Looks like intai will be coming in January.

    Nokozuna again?

    This definitely helps. My uncle married a Japanese national, so when he was trying to move the family from Australia back to Japan, it didn't take him long to get residence since he was applying as a dependent of his wife.
