Defies Laws of Space-Time, Displays Extraordinary Agility
In one of the more unconventional matches from Ura (and that’s saying something), the man in pink completely flummoxed opponent Toyohibiki in the top billed match in Juryo on day 4.
Ura is an unconventional rikishi in so many ways, and today’s bout shows that his unusual path to sumo has provided him with a broader palette of techniques, and produces unexpected and compelling results. Ura has struggled with injuries, increasing his mass, and tuning his sumo for the last 4 bashes, but now appears to be getting closer to having a winning formula to win promotion to Makuuchi.
Toyohibiki is clearly stunned and bewildered after this match, not knowing what happened or how.
