Trivia question

Recommended Posts

Found this and thought it was interesting:

 

Towanoyama and Kimenryu hold a distinction that only they can claim. What is it?

I faintly remember an older thread, similar to this one. I ilke it. It tingles my Watson-senses. But i don't know what we are looking for. The only thing i could find, is that both never had a non-kyujo 0-7.

Love these threads! I notice their first basho was an inverse of their last (6-1/1-6, 4-3/3-4) but I imagine that is fairly common. Nothing else jumps out, but eyes much sharper than mine should spot something.

 

Edit: Both also undefeated vs Hakuho in multiple bouts (2-0)!

BINGO...  They are the ONLY rikishi to have faced Hakuho more than once and be undefeated against him!

I will always remember unfortunate Towanoyama for being an ex-Maegashira whose sole "appearance" at that rank was a fusenpai.

Wow, that was quite the roller coaster of a six months for the guy: 11-4 at his then-career high of J3 and he must have been buzzing at the prospect of a Makuuchi debut. Then the debut comes but he sits out the whole thing. Returns in Juryo with a dismal 5-10 and is promptly demoted back to Makushita.
