    Last oshi-zumo yokozuna?

    I think it´s fair to state Akebono was the last Yokozuna who achieved the rank with almost solely relying on oshi sumo.

    Definitely, and I also don´t like the YDC trying to take away techniques seeming unbecoming to a certain rank. However, I am not sure if Hakuho always follows the spirit of said rules, which might be a reason he gets critized by the YDC . Just a gai-jin thought, though...

    It is just that I cannot remember a kachiage used to intentionally stun an opponent. That didn´t look right to me

    In a different sport Hakuho would have been flagged for unnecessary roughness. To those with more knowledge: did he intentionally target Endo´s chin with that kachiage or was it coincidence (i.e. Endo leaning forward to avoid being put into an upright position, and getting hit) ?

    Now my last post on that before I annoy the many nice and appreciated people here too much: if you really decide to call it a day, please end it with a one-off special that emcompasses the best of your work. Would love it.

    Please, don‘t give me nightmares. I just can‘t imagine the vision of sumo without your priceless wit for us gai-jin....

    Is it really that he doesn´t practice as much as others, or is he just bad during practice ?

    That´s entirely possible. Aoiyama is not quick enough to keep Enho in front of him for long.

    Well, his father always took his time, ending his one-minute standoffs with his beautiful left uwatenage

    Maybe Tsurugisho and Sadanoumi aren´t the most adept at handling harite. But looking at their reactions after their bouts, Shohozan seems to have added some horsepower to his slaps.

    Looked like it completely surprised him, almost comical. Btw: two kachiage, one harite, it seems Hakuho decided to show the YDC what he thinks of them..

    Looked like sort of ring rust - hopefully.

    In my opinion the opponents he manages to beat will play into it stronger than usual. He has a single-digit record and scored 12-3 in a tournament with heavily depleted Sanyaku ranks (not his fault, but...). I can imagine that 12 wins won´t be enough of he loses against Hakuho and two ozeki.
