初場所2016, 2日目: Shohozan Gold Star


Shohozan’s win over Harumafuji means I need to update the kinboshi tally page! The yokozuna attacked too forcefully after Shohozan’s initial, aggressive slap-fueled tachiai. Shohozan parried beautifully and Harumafuji tumbled over the edge. There were no more upsets in the other sanyaku bouts. Kakuryu had a close bout but the rest were actually pretty authoritative wins.

Endo’s luster was tarnished further today as he was knocked clear off his feet by a powerful, unrelenting charge from Mitakeumi. The upstart faces winless Sadanoumi tomorrow. Endo will yield a few envelopes to Gagamaru.
