    Like Terunofuji he seems to generate a lot of his power from his lower body and without that he's vulnerable. The first time he injured it he came back well a basho later but it seems to be lingering now. Kinda sad. I'm rooting for him.

    His tachi-ai is of terrible form, he puts all of the pressure in his right knee which is placed in awkward position, it scared me everytime i see his knee buckle.

    Kind of, while Terunofuji was one of the strongest, I feel Baruto was still one step above that (leveraging his height and wingspan very well).
    Through my nostalgia tinted glasses, I remember Baruto's matches as decided right after he secures a good belt grip.


    Baruto had the best sumo body ever, he was just that strong.

    How can you say that? Isn’t Tochinoshin exactly the proof to the contrary?

    I agree. Nodowa needs to be with open fingers, but Ichinojō’s didn’t look very open?

    I see people saying Mitakeumi must be injured, but I’d rather he’s not… at least get kachikoshi, man.

    Kakuryū pulling and losing again. Why?

    Tochinoshin–Ichinojō is gonna be good tomorrow. Tochinoshin must be going through a plan on how to win. I assume he’ll try some kind of twisting technique on the mawashi, I doubt he’d be able to just brute force yorikiri him out or throw this basho’s Ichinojō… also Tochinoshin is ever redder.


    I bet Tochinoshin will win by yorikiri , this version of Tochi is just too damn strong.

    Takanohana was the one hitting Takanoiwa with the remote? Did not know that.

    Maybe Harumafuji thought it would be a good idea to approach Takanoiwa the same way he does his junior. Then again, almost every "junior" gets mistreated, i'm just speculating a possible extra cause for the attack.

    Who will Tochinoshin fight from here on? He has already cleared everything except the M1 pair Ichinojou and Hokutofuji. Tomorrow's match should be the last big hurdle, then an ailing Hokutofuji (is he injured?), and maybe he'll go against so-so performing Chiyotairyu last.

    Exactly, this is the best chance he has ever had to clinch the cup. 14-1 is not unlikely at all.
