March 2017, Day 3, Hakuho v Takekaze

Should Hakuho fans be concerned with the amount of time it takes him to deal with Takekaze? I don’t think so. I think he’s being extra careful after his surprising Day 1 loss, and doesn’t want to get caught off guard again. 81 more words

March 2017, Day 1, Hakuho v Shodai

Hakuho’s enduring his longest stretch as a Yokozuna without winning a tournament championship. Granted, that’s only four tournaments, but for him it’s an eternity. He’s said that he wants to step up his game and re-establish himself at the head of the new quartet of Yokozunas, but he puts himself in a hole on Day 1 with a surprising loss against Shodai. 60 more words
