Wakaichiro lost his 4th match during day 7 action in Nagoya. This takes his overall record to 1-3. There were many items of note from this match. First and foremost this is some of the best lower division action I have ever seen. Wakaichiro fought like a man possessed. His sumo was tight, his oshi was focused center-mass, and he was relentless. Although he did not win, he has a lot to be proud of.
This is probably his best sumo, ever. Multiple times he had his opponent on the bales, but could not close the deal. I am sure he is disappointed, but I think the last 5% is going to come. I would guess that is the toughest match that Kotorikuzan has faced in a long time. Possibly ever.
I am going to do whatever I can to find video of this match, because it must be watched to be appreciated.
