Day 11 results and day 12 pairings

Recommended Posts

Hakuho beat yokozuna Asashoryu with an uwatedashinage to practically securing the ozeki promotion with a win against the undefeated yokozuna, just like Kotooshu two basho ago. Kotooshu though already had two losses, so Asashoryu still stayed the yusho arasoi leader, but this basho Hakuho is the sole leader now at 11-0 with Asashoryu one behin.

Wakanosato is following alone at 9-2 as Tochiazuma lost to Kaio and Takekaze to Tochinonada to fall to 8-3. Also at 8-3 with wins today are Kotooshu, Chiyotaikai (getting rid of the kadoban tag with a win against Dejima just in time as the next opponents will be difficult), Kisenosato and Kyokushuzan.

Miyabiyama won against fellow komusubi Roho and at 7-4 his place as sekiwake (replacing Hakuho) is likely. Two new komusubi will be needed and the joi-jin Ajigawa-beya duo of Ama and Aminishiki missed a chance to get nearer to kachi-koshi with losses. Futeno and Kokkai are completely out of it as they went make-koshi. As the joi-jin don't look good, with some luck a rikishi outside of the joi-jin can get the nod, like Kyokutenho (beating Kotomitsuki today and 7-4), Kakizoe or even Kisenosato.

Ushiomaru is the first demotion from makuuchi with his loss today, but several more rikishi need more wins like Otsukasa, Toyozakura, Kasuganishiki and Jumonji who got his first win of the basho against Ushiomaru.

Baruto is getting closer to the juyro yusho as he beat Shimotori to stay undefeated at 11-0 while Kyokunankai lost to Tosanoumi and now is two wins behind at 9-2. Tosanoumi secured the repromotion to makuuchi and gets a chance tomorrow to take Baruto down. Of the other five rikishi at 7-4 only Homasho could win to secure the kachi-koshi.

Takanotsuru lost again and is the first rikishi to be sure to get demoted to makushita. Some more rikishi aren't looking good with Daishodai at 0-11 and Toki at 2-9. The rest is fighting very well to stay as the bottom six rikishi all have a positive score and even Kakuryu won the last two bouts to improve to 5-6.

Funniest thing of the day was definitely Dejima's feeble and painfully slow attempt to henka Chiyotaikai - who then proceeded to beat him comprehensively and give him a rather more than an extra shove into the front row, followed by a very significant looks and muttering to himself. Dejima should be ashamed and got what he deserved... I mean it's not as if he lacks the bulk to withstand a proper tachi-ai...

Best bout (apart from Asa-Hakuho) was Kyokushuzan (again) - another brilliant display of comeback sumo and kachikoshi too... ensuring several more up and down basho for the record-breaking rikishi...

great performance from Hakuko! (Hugging...) He used his power to just block Asa and then played with his balance (once again). His additional bulk really helps him now to use his balance as a weapon by being in a control position. I'm looking forward to see how he will perform when Asa will be able to grip his mawashi and to be closer to Hakuko, his technic then could pay (as his power)

Hakuko deserves the Ozeki promotion and even shows great skills set to reach the last step. Would he be the youngest basho winner? (sorry I'm not familiar with Sumo history)

Hokutoriki is nowhere closed to be a sumo fighter during this basho, someone knows what happened?

Ama shows a terrific tai chai, I'm looking forward to see him with a little bit more weight in order to really step up. (sorry for questionning, but someone does know if he has gained weight?)

Kaio deserves definitly respect, he shows a great power. I just don't understand Tochi, why didn't he use his speed, battle only with his power is risky with Kaio... even not at 100%

Kotooshu shows that he is able to have a good record despite injuries, showing that he deserves his ozeki promotion. I'm looking forward to see him in full strenght to compete with the two Yokozuna (hoops I've made a mistake I think... (Clapping wildly...) )

Do you know if winning juryo yusho is enough to access to the top division while being ranked that low for Baruto? I would like to see his power in front of stronger opponents to really judge his abilities?

No, Takanohana was 19 years and 5 month old when he won his first basho. Hakuho is older.

Is this Takanohana oyakata or his father? I'm assuming the former, but just to be sure...

Of course Takanohana the son. Well, Takanohana the father was prodigious as well as he won the juryo yusho with 18 years and seven months, but it lasted a while until his first makuuchi yusho as he was 25 years and one month by then.

I agree. It might not have been of any importance yusho-wise, but it was certainly the most entertaining bout to watch today. (although the yawning Takanohana to the right seems to differ)

To hijack this thread for Day 13 purposes for a moment...interestingly, it looks like the #5 to #7 ranked guys will have their own mini-tourney on the final three days, not just the top 4 guys:

Day 13: Hakuho - Kotomitsuki

Day 14: Kotomitsuki - Kaio

Day 15: Hakuho - Kaio
