Recalling Ishihara’s Yaocho Charge Against Taiho.

The article says the bout was September 1962, but they must mean September 1963 when Kashiwado returned from missing four straight tournaments to win the yusho with perfect record. That was indeed an extraordinary comeback by Kashiwado but no real reason to think the win over Taiho wasn't legit. Their career head-to-head was actually pretty even. (Taiho had won 11 yusho up to that point, not quite 11 out of 12 tournaments though.)
