Hakuho's 34th Emperor's Cup!

It’s good to have a tournament be decided on the last day during the last match between the yokozuna. Today, Terunofuji did his part. After the big win yesterday against Ichinojo to keep the pressure on, he was able to throw Goeido, setting up Harumafuji. 181 more words

March Tournament: Day 11 - Hakuho Dominating

With Terunofuji falling to Kaisei, Hakuho has no real challengers in his bid to claim his 34th yusho. Until today, Terunofuji still had the yusho in his hands if he won out, including beating Hakuho – though he’d need to do it twice. 34 more words

March Tournament 2015: Day 10

Aminishiki seems to have gone down with a knee injury. It was heartbreaking to see him be unable to walk under his own power. He’d been having an excellent basho and is clearly in line for the technique special prize. 199 more words

March Tournament 2015: Day 4

All of the yokozuna and ozeki won. Hakuho had a quick, impressive win over Ichinojo. Hakuho truly is on his own level of this sport. Yesterday, Harumafuji had no response for his compatriot’s size but Hakuho got an Kisenosato advanced to 2-2 by getting a good two-handed belt grip and using that leverage to pick up Takarafuji and putting him over the edge. 139 more words
