    Basho highlights videos - Hatsu 2020

    I was introduced to Sumo by Nattosumo videos. Now, I love this tradition. It will be a terrible lose if the sumo content is not avalaible in the future.

    I was thinking why Hakuho let that time pass, when he could finish takakeisho in the momento. I thought it was a symbolic pose in the last moments of the basho.

    I forgot Wakatakakage. Great basho until injury. He seemed to be explosive and agile. We are looking for him to come back as soon as possible.

    My impressions of this basho: Hakuho is a beast, but there are not, in my humble opinion, rikishis of the quality Harumafuji has. Nice Basho from Shohozan, thirty five years and going on. The best basho I have seen from Ishiura, performig a good amount of nice techniques. I like Enho, what this man does with his size is simply amazing, three consecutive Kachi Koshi. Shodai is strong. He recieved a lot of self confidence defeating Asanoyama in the way he did. He needs a bit more of hot blood. I like Endo very much, his sumo on the belt is as good as the best. he seems to be a bit irregular. I am happy for Takakeisho performing this level with the recent injury in the pec. He is unidimensional, but a bulldozer. Abi is effective, but I can not compare his sumo with Endos, for example. Sorry for Mitakeumi, he has been so erratic this basho. Asanoyama is strong, but, for the moment, I can not see him as a Yokozuna.

    I am new in sumo, but, it seems to me that in this basho he has performed a lot of techniques. He tried a henka in Kotoshokigu match, but it was a mistake, in my opinion, because in todays condition, he could beat kotoshokigu doing real sumo. I would also like to collect some opinion about Takakeisho against Abi. I think Takakeisho lose because he was convinced that Abi was going to do a henka, so he stand up very slow and very high.

    Best wrestlers to watch in my opinion: Hakuho, Endo, Okinoumi, Enho, Ishiura, Shohozan. Versatile rikishis, pleasant for the eye and the intellect. I estimate men as Takakeisho or Abi, but these are, apart from their ranks one dimensional fighters, they win a lot but they are so boring. I am an spectator, not a counter of wins, so, I appreciate Rikishis who are able to do different things on the dohyo.

    Enho is faster than Ishiura. If he manages to defeat Terutsuyhosi tomorrow, I bet on a Kachi Kosi.

    I remember one similar case in a fight between Asashoryu and Kotooshu, when the last one got also KOed.
