    Makunouchi yushos in 2021

    Y Hakuho O Terunofuji Y Hakuho O Asanoyama O Terunofuji O Takakeisho
  3. A little bit confusing: The second question is: "Who will be ranked as Yokozuna on the January 2021 banzuke?" but one option is "There will be no Yokozunas on the 2022 banzuke." Same thing with the last question just vice-versa now: Question is about the Jan 2022 banzuke and last option is "..NO Ozekis ranked on the January 2021..." Which one is it now? Mildly confused

    the Dark Side of Hakuho....

    Interesting! Don't remember that bout. Do you know what year that bout was? I meant the Kakuryu v Goeido bout, found the video to that bout and included it in my previous comment.

    the Dark Side of Hakuho....

    I think I saw that one too. It was in a Kakuryu bout, when his opponent illegaly gripped his chonmage and Hakuho saw that correctly and raised his hand. After review the call was overturned and Kakuryu was awarded the win! Edit: Found it! It was May 2014, Day 12 Kakuryu vs Goeido. You can clearly see Goeido gripping Kakuryu's top knot at 2:43! Great call by the GOAT, gonna make one hell of a shimpan when he becomes Hakuho Oyakata

    YDC convenes after November 2020

    Didn't we already have this discussion a few months back? Being able to sit out bashos is not an advantage, it's a hard-earned privilege granted only to those at the very top of the sport. Hakuho and Kakuryu are able to have this "advantage" because of their rank, but they had to get there first. They had to be in every basho, fight all 15 days, otherwise they wouldn't have fulfilled the requirement of 33 wins over 3 bashos to get promoted to Ozeki and the equivalent of two yusho in a row to get to Yokozuna. If a rikishi wants to take a few months off he can do so! He just has to go through all the stages required for becoming a Yokozuna, just like every other Yokozuna had to do so before him.

    While I think that I normally am a rather pessimistic person, I don't think there's a chance in hell Takakeisho is giving up two in a row against Terunofuji. Is there anyone who says he doesn't deserve this yusho? He's fighting almost flawlessly this basho and even though the pressure has been on him to deliver after both Yokozuna and his fellow Ozeki dropped out he didn't falter under the pressure and showed real Ozeki sumo. And he would be the first Ozeki to win a basho since what, 2017, when Kisenosato won? That's crazy. Good luck for tomorrow Takakeisho, bring it home!

    While there certainly are people who see Terunofuji in a different light since his shameful henka, I can assure you there are still lots of people who have not forgiven him for it and likely never will, including me.

    Can't wait for Takakeisho v Kotoshoho tomorrow; Ozeki v future Ozeki (at least in my book ) I think that bout will be one of the best on Day 11!
