Five days remain in the Kyushu tournament, and eleven bouts matching rikishi in the named ranks are yet to take place. Most likely, we will get two a day from here, and three on senshuraku. Here’s what’s in store:
Day 11. Takayasu vs. Ichinojo and Goeido vs. Kaisei
Day 12. Takayasu vs. Tochinoshin and Goeido vs. Mitakeumi
The Day 12 torikumi was just posted. Going by rank, these bouts should have taken place on Day 13, but it looks like the schedulers want to postpone the juicy Takakeisho vs. Takayasu bout, which I was expecting to happen on Day 12. Below are my projections for the final three days, but it’s possible that the schedulers will rearrange things further in order to produce the most exciting finish.
Day 13. Goeido vs. Ichinojo and Takayasu vs. Takakeisho
Day 14. Goeido vs. Tochinoshin and Takayasu vs. Mitakeumi
Day 15. Goeido vs. Takayasu, Tochinoshin vs. Mitakeumi, and Ichinojo vs. Kaisei
