初場所2016, 9日目: Ikioi Beat Tochinoshin


Ikioi pulled off a great win over his fellow komusubi to pick up his third win of the tournament. While the Georgian now must go undefeated to achieve a winning record and retain his rank, Ikioi has a *little* breathing room. He faces Shohozan tomorrow and will have his hands full with the likes of Aminishiki & Aoiyama later in the week. Shohozan was blown off the ring by kamikaze Yoshikaze today and will be looking for redemption tomorrow.

Hakuho and Kotoshogiku still lead with Harumafuji alone one win off pace. This resurgent Kotoshogiku dominated Kaisei while Hakuho decided to skip today’s effort, pulling out a glorious henka against Tochiozan. “Hey, if Aminishiki can do it every day, why can’t I do it once?”
