    • He won't win any bouts in 2022!

  3. 3. Which of the following rikishi will Oho win MORE bouts than in total (i.e out of 90 - not the direct head-to-heads). So if you think Oho will win 45 bouts (as he did in 2021), and rikishi A will win 42, vote 'yes'. You can vote as many times as you like.

    • Meisei (2022 = 49)
    • Wakatakakage (41)
    • Endo (43)
    • Ura (59)
    • Abi (50)
    • Akua (44)
    • Bushozan (45)
    • Ichiyamamoto (49)
    • Enho (26)
    • Kotokuzan (28)
    • He will have a worse record than all of the above.

This is the last annual poll that I will be setting for 2022.

I believe (please correct me if I am wrong), that Oho (born on St Valentine's Day, 2000) was the very first rikishi born after January 1st, 2000 to become a sekitori (a 'salaried' rikishi in either Makunouchi or Juryo), back in January of 2021.

In November 2021, he went 11-4 at the rank of J7E. I think that this will be enough to put him at the very bottom of Makunouchi for January 2022. (At the very least, he will be ranked at the top of Juryo.)

How will he do in 2022?

To be honest I don't know anything about him other than that he's Taiho's grandson, so I'm guessing but he'll be in the joi by the end of the year and will be beating the lower rankers with regularity

M9-10, he might accidentally beat a komusubi if he gets to face one that's struggling, and he'll have a couple double-digit basho that will boost an otherwise middling record ahead of Kotokuzan, Enho, Endo, and Akua.

Last Basho he overcame his lethary.

So I expect him to compete quite well in Makuuchi.

I predict 52 wins

He will be an elevator sekitori for 2022 and have two trips to Juryo

Oho will return to Juryo for one tournament, maybe two, and will struggle to adapt to Makuuchi life.

Nobody thinks that Oho will be ranked in the sanyaku in January 2023 - and only one person thinks that he will be in Juryo. So, a year in which he will cement his place in the top division, perhaps?

As of day 8 of the first basho of the year, Oho has defeated an M14 (M14W - he previously lost to M14E) - but he is not faced any higher ranks, so that is likely to change this basho.

Exactly  half of us think that he will defeat at least one sanyaku opponent (but a Yokozuna) at some stage in 2022 - so that is something to look forward to.

With five wins (out of eight), Oho is currently doing better than Meisei, Wakatakakage, Endo, Ura, Akua, Bushozan, Ichiyamamoto and Enho. He is doing the same as Kotokuzan. Only Abi is currently doing better than him. But there are a load more bouts to come this year!

More in November - or December!
