    Ichinojo would accompany Meisei, Tobizaru, Kyokutaisei and Hoshoryu up to Makuuchi.

    Are Abi's days numbered?

    I really don't think Abi means any harm with his actions and his actions certainly don't have any malicious intent. He appears to not be able to think straight and unfortunately it showed quite often. Saddened by the news because I think he has his heart in the right place and is certainly a really good rikishi with a lot of potential now being thrown out of the window. If his resignation is going to be accepted I wish him all the best for his future. I don't know about anyone else, but I'm certainly going to miss him.
  3. I cannot agree at all with your statement. He had to battle Asashoryu and Harumafuji and those are just two rikishi of quite a few that were doing Sumo at a very high level whilst Hakuho was racking up the yusho and with it the records. Compared to other Dai-Yokozuna he hasn't faced any weaker competition at all.
  4. Every Yokozuna had to get there first. They all had to participate in every basho or fear potential demotion. No Yokozuna was able to take "extended breaks"before he achieved the rank of Yokozuna. Yokozuna is just a very special rank that comes with certain privileges. And let's not forget that the tournament before this one both Yokozuna fought on senshuraku for the Emperor's cup.

    Has to be between Hoshoryu and Ichinojo. But I guess Ichi's bout against Shohozan was his test and because he lost I think Hoshoryu gets the nod over him now.

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

    Since he hasn't beaten a yokozuna this tournament and managed to get 3 losses, I would say this is not part of a tsuna run. If he wins convincingly and decisively next tournament with a 14-1 or even a zensho yusho I can see the YDC pull the trigger and promote him, they long for another Japanese yokozuna :)

    Well Meisei (J1 10-5 Y), Tobizaru (J2 9-6), Kyokutaisei (J5 10-5) should be in front of him, maybe even Ichinojo at J5 with 9-6? But I could very well see him at 4th in line. Worst case for him would be 5th.

    What about Terunofuji? If Shodai wins the basho tomorrow his record is basically the same as Terunofuji's when he was promoted to Ozeki, Terunofuji was M2 instead of M4 and his 8-7 was the first basho of his ozeki run. That is quite comparable and not extremely different to the Shodai situation. Also Shodai had two jun-yusho back to back, which is something to consider. Next basho he will still have that 8-7 as part of his 3 basho qualification, does it really matter whether that 8-7 is in the middle of at the start of his ozeki run?

    I wouldn't be so sure about that. Crazier things have happened.

    I know the 8-7 doesn't look as good, but if he somehow wins the basho tomorrow I think he'll be promoted to Ozeki. The jun-yusho in january, this yusho paired with the 33 wins requirement met, should be enough.

    I'm really hoping for a 3-way-playoff tomorrow. It would be the perfect end to a great basho. "Hot" take: I think one of the two Sekiwake is going to win the honbasho

    Even though we missed an entire basho because of COVID-19 the Sumo Gods have blessed us with two M17 "Cinderella-stories", it could definitely be worse Really glad for Terunofuji, after all what has happened to come back in such a fashion takes a tremendous amount of willpower.

    Hello from Armenia

    Welcome, Armenia is a beautiful country! I guess you're pretty happy that Tochi finally got his Kachikoshi today :) Definitely the right decision to start contributing instead of just lurking, it's an awesome forum but I guess you already know that. Have a nice day and see you in the discussion posts

    Hello from Singapore

    Hey man! I'm a pretty "new" fan myself and I while there are many members that know way more about Sumo than I do (and that is a huge understatement ) they accept all people, no matter their age or their knowledge of this great sport. The Sumo community and especially the community in this forum is awesome! But since you've been lurking on this site and other sumo-related sites for a while now I'm sure you know that already. I would like your comment but it seems I've reached my daily allowance on them Have an awesome day my friend!

    Tokushoryu masterfully nimble today, the KK is not far for him. Who would've thought it after the march basho that he can hold his ground in the single digits of Maegashira. Really glad for him! He showed superb sumo today. I believe that Asanoyama will just get stronger after today's loss. I don't believe this basho is already decided!
