    March basho 2021

    Mitakeumi has not been able to reach Ozeki and now he is 5 - 7. in my opinion he will not reach Ozeki if he continue as he has done until now. We see when he goes up against Asanoyama that he seems not to be at Ozeki level now. The question is if he he able to reach Ozeki, hsa he the capacity to do it?
  2. I think that Enho need to do as his stablemaster says with starting using sweeping legs and in this way he would improve his sumo so that he can win
  3. Mitakeumi has tried tournaemnt after tournament to reach ozeki but it does not seems that he is able to reach that position. I don't think he will get to Ozeki otherwhise he would have done this already

    2019 Kyushu Basho Discussion (spoiler alert)

    I agree, it seems that one basho he is doing well and the next basho he is not maintaining the level to get enough wins and get these quality wins after he has gotten the win of one basho or double digits win

    Takakeisho injury update

    Exactly, If Takakeisho do not rest as needed or maybe surgery, then probably he will be the next person going down and demoted to lower divisions

    2019 Aki Basho Discussion (spoiler alert!)

    I think Tochi would have trouble this basho with getting kachikoshi, maybe he will win maybe Takakeisho will win, Takakeisho looking good this basho

    Haru Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Takakeisho has already quality wins. He won against Kakuryu and against Takayasu and these two wins was not easy. If he wins against Ichinojo or Tochinoshin then he has double digit wins. I do not think he has to win against both of them to be promoted

    Haru Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    It does not look good for Mitakeumi. When he continues like this he will be demoted from sanyaku instead of being promoted to sekiwake

    Hatsu Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    I think Takakeisho is Ozeki materrial. As we have seen in the 5 last basho's Takakeisho has had above 10 wins in 4 basho's with 9 wins in the 3rd basho and there is only a few rikishi that has done it as Takakeisho.

    Hatsu Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Takakeisho is not promoted to Ozeki, in spite of that he has 33 wins in three tournaments. Record in the last three tournaments: September 9-6 November 12-3 January 11-4 This is total of 33 wins in thee consecutive tournaments, but they will still see another tournament. You can't say that 33 wins in three tournaments are a rule for promotion to Ozeki, for then he would be promoted. What is the reason that they are not consistent with the 33 wins?
