    This IS the July 2020 Basho thread!! Spoilers!!

    I’m just so happy that Terunofuji’s impressive comeback story ended perfectly for him, this basho is a testament to his amazing determination and will power, and I want to see how far he can go in Makuuchi. As for Asanoyama, he also had a really strong performance and, in my opinion, looks like the next guy to possibly wear the tsuna.

    However the suspense for the final day’s bouts is killing me. I’m rooting for Terunofuji, because he has had one of the most incredible comeback stories, if not the most incredible one that sumo has ever seen.

    I like how Asanoyama’s basho went. I feel like he could have beaten Terunofuji in their bout, and Terutsuyoshi won by Ashitori. I think he may be the next Yokozuna or a great Ozeki, but time will tell

    Yokozuna Intai Photos

    Wakanohana I performs his final dohyo-iri, flanked by the great duo of Kashiwado and Taiho The former Futabayama cutting his chonmage Asashio III also had his last dohyo-iri flanked by Kashiwado and Taiho His oyakata (I forgot) cutting off Asashio’s topknot for the last time Tochinoumi , like his 2 predecessors, was flanked by Kashiwado and Taiho The former Tochinishiki cutting off Tochinoumi’s topknot A better and clearer view of Kasugano Oyakata cutting off Tochinoumi’s topknot I think this is a photo of Tochinoumi right after his ceremony ended I cannot find an image of Sadanoyama’s dohyo-iri, but I remember it being the first one to not have Yokozuna as attendants Tamanoshima (later Yokozuna Tamanoumi) cuts Sadanoyama’s chonmage The new Yokozuna duo of Kitanofuji and Tamanoumi flanked Kashiwado’s final dohyo-iri The end of an 8 year Yokozuna rivalry, as Taiho cuts his great friend and great rival’s chonmage I think this is Kashiwado after the ceremony, but I am not sure

    How far will Terunofuji go?

    I meant to say that he was hampered so badly with injuries, it's as if he's an older wrestler. He probably wouldn't end up going too far.

    Dohyo-iri Evolution

    I went back through the videos,"National Art of Sumo", and found out that the dohyo-iri has REALLY changed over the years. From Umegatani Totaro II and Hitachiyama (Special style) to Hakuho and Kakuryu, the dohyo-iri really changed. Many different yokozuna have had really different styles, from Graceful Futabayama to I HATE THIS RITUAL JUST GET IT OVER WITH Kitanoumi, to Hakuho's dohyo-iri, which has really changed since 2007. What do you guys think would be a cause for a change of the ritual?

    I think he may make Juryo once again too, but the guy is old and quite hampered, so I don't expect TOO much from him either.

    Yokozuna Intai Photos

    I've had some spare time on my hands, so now I've gathered a good amount of danpatsu-shiki photos of yokozuna, including the one that happened yesterday. Futabayama: Final Dohyo-Iri (Video. Flanked by Terukuni :) and Haguroyama) Haguroyama: Maedayama: Chiyonoyama: Final Dohyo-Iri: (Flanked by Wakanohana I and Tochinishiki) Tochinishiki: His topknot being cut by Yokozuna Asashio III His topknot being cut by Yokozuna, friend, and rival Wakanohana I: Final Dohyo-iri: Merchandise (Not sure if it's from the actual Danpatsu -shiki, but it says the word Intai on it:

    Next Yokozuna??????

    Sorry for the late reply, but I'm now beginning to eye Hoshoryu, as most of you guys know, the nephew of Asa. His rise has been pretty fast, kind of comparable to that of Takahanada (Takanohana II). I wonder where he will go.

    Izutsu-oyakata has died

    This is horribly sad news, knowing he was so young. It's quite frightening knowing how fast pancreatic cancer can take somebody, as we saw with Chiyonofuji.

    How far will Terunofuji go?

    OOPS, I accidentally clicked Yokozuna. It is very sad to think that he fell so far in such little time, but man the guy is beat up, very badly. There is practically very little hope, in my opinion, of him getting back to sanyaku. His body has already suffered too much, its been tormented horribly, it just is not going to hold up for much longer. Had he been YOUNGER, maybe things would be different.
  13. I love this thread. Seeing Yokozuna try other sports is very, very interesting.

    When will be the next basho to see 3 Yokozuna on day 15?

    Yeah, I think time will need to come. I mean, it may take forever. Only time will tell. For example, the last basho in the Chiyonofuji Era where there were 3 Yokozuna in competition was Nagoya 1991. The next time that happened was Nagoya 1998. I mean, it might take a long time, especially with a dominant Yokozuna coming in, which will happen.
