J9 – Shodai ne lâche rien !

Le dernier combat de cette journée opposait deux des lutteurs qui peuvent prétendre au titre. L’ozeki Takakeisho et le maegashira 4 Shodai qui effectue un tournoi convaincant et qui semble en grande forme.

Le combat fut bref, alors que le maegashira se trouvait acculé au bord du dohyo, il réussi à s’écarter et emporé par son élan Takakeisho se retrouva en dehors du cercle dans l’instant qui suivi.

Tokushoryu (M17, 8-1) partage également la tête du tournoi après avoir battu Tsurugisho (M12, 3-6) et a obtenu son premier record de victoire en première division depuis le basho de l’été 2017.

AUtre combat très attendu aujourd’hui : le poids plume Enho a affronté et battu un Ozeki pour la première fois, démontrant une fois encore son agilité contre le vétéran Goeido (3-6).

Combattant en tant que maegashira, Enho (5-4) a esquivé la charge initiale de Goeido, puis a tiré l’ozeki par son bras gauche et l’a poussé par derrière alors que Goeido se débattait pour tenter de revenir dans le dohyo.

Goeido, gêné par sa cheville gauche, est sous le coup d’une menace de rétrogradation pour la première fois depuis sa promotion en 2014.

Décidément les temps sont dûrs pour Takayasu, en perdant contre le maegashira 6 Takarafuji il a perdu l’espoir d’obtenir le nombre suffisant de victoires pour retrouver son rang d’Ozeki lors du prochain tournoi.

Le nouveau sekiwake Asanoyama a dominé le nouveau komusubi Daieisho (3-6) et est passé à 6-3, il reste ainsi dans la course.

Chaque jour réserve sont lot de suspens et le combat de demain qui opposera Takakeisho à Enho en en constitue un bon élément !

Takakeisho falls, Enho beats Goeido on Day 9 of New Year meet

TOKYO (Kyodo) — Rank-and-filer Shodai snapped a seven-bout losing streak against ozeki Takakeisho on Monday to leave himself in a two-way tie for the lead at the New Year Grand Sumo Tournament.

Shodai (8-1), chasing his first top-division title, brushed aside one of his overnight co-leaders after Takakeisho (7-2) briefly bounced back in the final bout of Day 9 at Tokyo’s Ryogoku Kokugikan.

The No. 4 maegashira found himself on the ropes but stepped aside as Takakeisho thrusted forward, giving the ozeki a push from behind for good measure as he stepped out.

Takakeisho entered the bout with a 7-2 record against the rank-and-filer, having won their last seven match-ups. The ozeki faces No. 5 Enho in a highly-anticipated match-up on Day 10 of the 15-day meet, while Shodai takes on No. 7 Shohozan (5-4).

New Year meet surprise Tokushoryu (8-1) retained his share of the lead after defeating No. 12 Tsurugisho (3-6) and earned his first winning record in the top division since the Summer basho in 2017.

A pair of false starts appeared to rattle the grapplers but Tokushoryu seized control and drove Tsurugisho, fighting on a bad left knee, over the straw.

In addition to Takakeisho, two other wrestlers trail the leaders at 7-2 in the absence of grand champions Hakuho and Kakuryu, who pulled out of the meet earlier with injuries.

No. 9 Yutakayama, Shodai’s stablemate, won a thrusting battle with No. 7 Onosho (4-5), while No. 11 Kagayaki shoved out No. 14 Shimanoumi (3-6).

In other Day 9 bouts, popular division lightweight Enho faced and beat an ozeki for the first time, showing off his trademark agility against veteran Goeido (3-6).

Fighting as a career-high No. 5 maegashira, Enho (5-4) dodged Goeido’s initial charge and then pulled the ozeki around by his left arm and pushed him out from behind as Goeido fought to get back in the ring.

Goeido, troubled by his left ankle, is facing a demotion from sumo’s second-highest rank for the first time since he was promoted in 2014.

No. 6 Takarafuji (4-5) outlasted Takayasu (3-6) and ended the sekiwake’s hopes of securing an automatic return to ozeki.

The pair spent the majority of the bout locked up in the center of the ring, with Takarafuji slowly inching the struggling Takayasu toward this fate over the straw.

New sekiwake Asanoyama overpowered new komusubi Daieisho (3-6) and improved to 6-3.

Daieisho took Asanoyama to the edge with a strong initial charge, but Asanoyama recovered and turned Daieisho around with a left-handed belt hold before finishing him off with an overarm throw.

Komusubi Abi (5-4) stunned Endo (6-3) and handed the No. 1 maegashira his second straight loss while improving to 7-2 over their nine match-ups.

The komusubi claimed his fifth win in seconds, charging out of the gates with outstretched arms to push out Endo, who started the meet off by beating both yokozuna and ozeki Goeido.
