    Takakeishou has been denied ozeki promotion with 33 wins including Y an JY, denied Yokozuna promotion with JY and Y, surely they can't also deny yokozuna promotion with Y Y... His sumo may be one-dimensional, he's pretty good at it though.

    Videos Aki 2023 - Days 1-15

    Thanks again for the daily videos. Can I suggest a blast of the past bout for day 14? In remembrance of one of my favourite rikishi: Tokitenku. The last win of his career was on day 14 of Aki 2015. The video in the link on sumo reference is down but I think it was a good bout as it was a kakenage-win.

    Very enjoyable day 1. I do think Tobizaru hurt his shoulder because of Kiri's morizashi. He did not move it all after the bout. A dislocation maybe?

    Thank you Moti for the 15 days of hard work! Being a sumofan would not be the same without you.

    Trivia bits

    Today Aoiyama surpassed Tochitenki on the all time hatakikomi wins list. He's now second behind ex-Sekiwake Masudayama with 139.

    Banzuke for Nagoya 2023

    Gonoyama at M13e looks a bit silly as well. 14-1 @ J1e deserves more.

    Kiribayama looked so nervous in the first week of this basho. That's all gone now. He fights with the pride of an ozeki.

    Very enjoyable day of sumo today with empressive wins of Hokuseiho and Kinbouzan. I am wondering. If you had to choose one to make it to Yokozuna. Who would you choose? You can make a case for both of them. Hokuseiho is probably the strongest of the two but Kinbouzan looks way more allround. I tend to go for Kinbouzan. In any case I think they will both have a very hard time dealing with Houshoryu in the near future. Because of their big posture they'll be on the receiving end of a lot of his uwatenages.

    The end?

    Works fine in Belgium.

    Grand Slams in Ozumo

    First of all: great topic! Thanks! As mentioned above Hatsu is the thoughest tournament to win for career grand slam holders. It's also striking that Kyushu has only been won 9 times in total by the 'non career grand slam holders with atleast four yusho'. For comparison Haru has been won 21 times by the same group, Natsu 20, Aki 20, Nagoya 17 and Hatsu 16 times.

    Nagoya Basho 2021

    I don't blame Hakuho for the possible injury to Terunofujis elbow. He got himself in an advantageous position and made the most of the only grip he had, the arm... I do blame him for that huge kachiage. Blinding Teru with his left hand and uppercut him with his right arm. The bout could have been over right there with Teru unconscious on the clay.
