    2019 Kyushu Basho Discussion (spoiler alert)

    I think Takakeishou looked tentative on day 1, and confirmed today, I hope he gets the 8. How about my boy Hokotofuji, great match and win. Sucks seeing the chair already. Crazy day.

    2019 Kyushu Basho Discussion (spoiler alert)

    I'll say it ... Abi got a tough opponent in "no neck" Takarafuji . All he got was upper chest no chin, no neck. Takarafuji has one of the best examples of a sumo body lots of muscle and little fat. Hard as a rock I'm sure. Good win for Takarafuji.

    Pre-Kyushu predictions?

    I don't know why or how Abi's opponents don't just do an Enho and dive under the throat attack..and just push forward.

    Pre-Kyushu predictions?

    As much as I love Takakeishou , I don't like his injury for his style. The Yokozuna may have problems. Hokotofuji with hs "bring on the violence " style will be my pick Go Hokotofuji !!!

    Sumo calendar ?

    Apologies if off topic . Does anybody know of a source for 2020 sumo calandar that ships to the US ? I'd love to give one as a gift to my sister and one for myself. Thank you.

    I get the feeling it's not the last Yusho showdown for these two. Nice job by Ishura beating Tamawashi for KK. Lobster boy Kotoyuki has a nice basho and looked powerful. And I think Hokotofuji finished up winning 8 straight . Congrats to Mita !

    I'm so glad Hokotofuji won maybe fighting spirt prize in order if he wins tomorrow. Mitakiumi Takakeishou play off would be sweet.

    Just reminder live sumo on NHK world (free over the air in the US and streamed on the NHK website)in English at 4:10am EST. Ishura has really picked it up, fantastic win today. Hitting low and hard. Lobster boy Kotoyuki doing pretty well too. Lots of drama going into second week !

    I agree.. Kakuryu is not safe at all. A surging Hokotofuji a resurging Tamawashi and a rested Takakeishou and Goedeo ? Who knows ?.. I don't mind Hak being out.. This is the future..

    Takakeisho injury update

    I really hope this wild win he had against a very game Daishou ... He gets his mojo back
