J7- Deux lutteurs émergent !

Okinoumi ne peut résister aux poussées de Takakeisho !

Deux lutteurs émergent !

En effet Takakeisho et Terunofuji ont enregistré des victoires convaincantes ce samedi pour terminer la première semaine du tournoi en tant que seuls lutteurs invaincus.

L’ozeki Takakeisho, qui tente de remporter sa deuxième Coupe de l’Empereur, s’est amélioré à un score parfait de 7-0 en éliminant le maegashira 3 Okinoumi lors du dernier combat du jour.

Takekeisho n’a laissé aucune chance à Okinoumi (4-3) en le poussant directement hors du cercle en quelques secondes. Le lutteur de 24 ans de l’écurie Chiganoura porte le poids de son rôle en tant que lutteur le mieux classé du tournoi après les retraits pour blessure des deux grands champions, Hakuho et Kakuryu, ainsi que des ozeki Asanoyama et Shodai.

L’ancien ozeki Terunofuji s’impose comme le challenger le plus redoutable de Takakeisho parmi le peloton restant. Le Mongol de 28 ans – qui a fait un superbe retour dans la division élite makuuchi en remportant le championnat en juillet – a également remporté sa septième victoire consécutive en renversant le maegashira 1 Wakatakakage.

Le sekiwake Mitakeumi s’est amélioré à 5-2 avec une performance impressionnante contre le maegashira 4 Hokutofuji (4-3). Quant au nouveau sekiwake Takanosho il a chuté à 4-3 après avoir succombé au maegashira 3 Kagayaki.

Seul autre lutteur à avoir débuté la journée invaincu, le n ° 14 Chiyonokuni (6-1), a décroché la première défaite de son tournoi depuis son retour en division makuuchi contre le maegashira 13 Hoshoryu (4-3), le neveu de l’ancien yokozuna Asashoryu.

Takakeisho, Terunofuji stay tied for lead on Day 7

TOKYO (Kyodo) — Takakeisho and Terunofuji recorded convincing wins Saturday to finish the first week of the November Grand Sumo Tournament as the only undefeated wrestlers.

Ozeki Takakeisho, gunning for his second Emperor’s Cup, improved to a perfect 7-0 by blowing away No. 3 maegashira Okinoumi in the final bout of Day 7 at Ryogoku Kokugikan.

Hitting hard and low at the jump, Takekeisho gave Okinoumi (4-3) no chance as he pushed him straight back to the straw and out.

The 24-year-old from the Chiganoura stable carries the weight of expectation as the highest-ranked wrestler left at the 15-day tournament following the injury withdrawals of both grand champions, Hakuho and Kakuryu, as well as ozeki Asanoyama and Shodai.

Former ozeki Terunofuji stands out as Takakeisho’s most formidable challenger among the remaining field.

The 28-year-old Mongolian — who made a stunning comeback to the elite makuuchi division by winning the championship in July — also won his seventh straight by toppling No. 1 Wakatakakage.

But the two-time champion had to survive a difficult battle against the emerging talent. The 25-year-old maegashira countered Terunofuji’s attempt at a slap down and pushed him to the straw before the komusubi clinched the bout with a beltless arm throw.

Sekiwake Mitakeumi improved to 5-2 with an impressive showing against No. 4 Hokutofuji (4-3).

The burly combatants, longtime rivals from their university days, collided heavily before two-time champion Mitakeumi powered forward and pushed Hokutofuji out.

New sekiwake Takanosho dropped to 4-3 after succumbing to No. 3 Kagayaki. Takanosho had the early initiative but lost his balance as Kagayaki (3-4) evaded an attempted push out before dragging the sekiwake onto the clay.

Komusubi Takayasu improved to 3-4 by forcing out Mongolian No. 1 Kiribayama (1-6). The former ozeki landed a pair of face slaps before taking a solid belt hold and muscling his smaller opponent from the ring.

The only other wrestler to start the day unbeaten, No. 14 Chiyonokuni (6-1), took the first loss of his makuuchi division comeback tournament against No. 13 Hoshoryu (4-3), the nephew of dominant Mongolian former yokozuna Asashoryu.
