Shohozan Henka Takes Out Kisenosato

Many people will be angry with Shohozan for his henka of Kisenosato, especially since Kisenosato had been leading with Takayasu. Since Harumafuji steamrolled Takayasu, Shohozan will get fewer death threats as Kisenosato remains a part of the 5-man yusho race. Ikioi just plain muscled Terunofuji off the dohyo.

Hakuho is one strong dude. Every time Tochinoshin tried to pick him up (he can lift Ichinojo), Hak countered and eventually maneuvered the Georgian over the straw bales for an authoritative yorikiri.

The leadership group, all with kachi-koshi 8-2 records: Hakuho, Harumafuji, Kisenosato, Takayasu, Takarafuji.
