Unfortunately because of internet issues, I was not able to catch video of today’s matches, live. I was only able to get two of the bouts on Twitter, so this will be an abbreviated update. In the one that I don’t have, Nakashima worked Wakayahara to the edge and pushed him out for an oshidashi win.
Now, for the bouts that I found on Twitter, we have the young recruit Aoifuji repeating his hikiotoshi win from the other day. I guess if it works, it works.
Now, at the top of the division we have Takemaru on the left, Nishikimaru on the right. After a false start, Nishikimaru retreated. Takemaru gave chase but was shoved down in a forceful hatakikomi.
I wager they will pair Nakashima against Nishikimaru with Aoifuji facing off against a wrestler with one loss…if Nishikimaru is not battling a Jonidan opponent.
