Kotoshogiku now leads alone. His straightforward, jack-rabbit action was too much for the yokozuna and a jubilant Kokugikan erupted with cheers, and zabuton rained down on the dohyo as Hakuho was forced out of the ring.
Harumafuji now shares his place with Hakuho, one loss back after his convincing win over Goeido. He will face Kotoshogiku tomorrow and a win will make this a three-man race. This looks to be an exciting yusho.
