With the day 3 torikumi published, we know that fan favorite Ura will be facing his second opponent before noon on Tuesday. The day 3 match is against Sandanme 89 Daishoki, from Oitekaze heya. Both men come into Tuesday with 1 win. Daishoki has been a Sandanme mainstay since 2017, and is a solid rikishi, typically turning in 4-3 or 3-4 tournaments.
Ura’s first match featured some solid sumo, with Ura moving quickly, efficiently and with most of the work done by his opponent. Against an average mid to lower level Sandanme, it is likely to be another rapid, obligatory “hey, how do you do, please exit smartly, I have places to go” kind of match.
On a personal note – I do adore the fact that Ura has his pink sagari with his humble black mawashi mandated for the lower ranks.
