J7 – L’écrémage continue

 

A quasiment mi-parcours du tournoi, les choses ne sont toujours pas définies pour identifier un vainqueur potentiel. Comme souvent, le groupe des hommes de tête diminue progressivement en passant de 14 à 6, coupe drastique s’il en est, mais insuffisante pour déterminer un favori particulier.

Pourtant, il ya un lutteur seul en tête, et cela, ce n’est pas une surprise : Hakuhô, seul yokozuna en lice après l’abandon de Kakuryû, a livré un combat intense mais victorieux contre le maegashira 3 Takarafuji (3-3). Après un corps-à-corps furieux, Hakuhô s’est effacé intelligemment, laissant son adversaire s’écrouler à terre.

Juste derrière lui, ils ne sont plus que 5 à une victoire d’écart :

Le M13 Kagayaki a manqué de se faire sortir par Nishikigi (2-4) mais finalement a eu le dessus.

L’autre M13 Chiyomaru affrontait l’ex-ôzeki Kotoshôgiku (2-4), et il n’a laissé aucune chance au vétéran d’espérer remporter le combat.

Le maegashira 10 Shodai était confronté au M8 Shohôzan qui avait le même score que lui. Le combat fut équilibré au début, mais Shohôzan abusa des tsuppari et laissa l’initiative à Shodai qui le repoussa hors du dohyô.

Le maegashira 8 Sadanoumi était lui face au surprenant M6 Enho (moins de 100kg sur la pesée). Ce dernier, fidèle à sa tactique de tournoi, passait sous la garde du M8 au tachi-ai, mais Sadanoumi réussissait à empoigner le mawashi de son adversaire, et malgré une résistance terrible, le souleva et le bascula en dehors du cercle sacré.

Le dernier à rester au contact du yokozuna est certainement le plus dangereux adversaire d’Hakuhô : le komusubi Asanoyama est le seul san’yaku restant au plus près, et il s’est débarrassé sans aucun problème du maegashira 1 Okinoumi.

Mais pendant ce temps, que font les autres san’yaku ?

L’ôzeki Takakeisho et le sekiwake Mitakeumi ont tous les deux remporté leur combat de manière autoritaire en retrouvant leur « fighting spirit » qu’ils avaient un peu perdu hier.

Le dernier ôzeki Takayasu a gagné sur le fil contre le M3 Tamawashi. L’ôzeki kadoban semble toutefois en mauvaise posture pour garder son grade au prochain tournoi, car il aurait très bien pu perdre aujourd’hui.

Les komusubi Abi et Hokutofuji se retrouvent à 4 victoires, l’un en gagnant et le deuxième en perdant aujourd’hui. Le dernier komusubi, Endo, gagne contre Ryuden, et remonte à 3 victoires.

Hakuho maintains advantage

Hakuho maintains advantage

FUKUOKA – Yokozuna Hakuho maintained his sole lead by beating rank-and-filer Takarafuji on Saturday, the seventh day of the Kyushu Grand Sumo Tournament.

The Mongolian-born yokozuna defeated No. 3 maegashira Takarafuji (3-4) to improve to 6-1 in the day’s final bout at Fukuoka Kokusai Center.

Takarafuji fought aggressively from the initial clash — when Hakuho lunged for a left-handed belt hold but came up empty. But despite his good fortune, Takarafuji was easily denied a belt hold of own. When he shifted his weight to try and gain one, Hakuho quickly slapped him down and pumped his fist in celebration.

Hakuho, who holds the record for career grand tournament championships, is aiming to win his 43rd makuuchi title at a 15-day tournament that has been plagued by injuries to high-ranking wrestlers. Yokozuna Kakuryu and ozeki Goeido are among those on the casualty list, which also includes three rank-and-file wrestlers.

Five wrestlers, including komusubi Asanoyama and No. 8 Sadanoumi, remain one win behind Hakuho at the final tournament of the year.

Ozeki Takakeisho and Takayasu fought persistently and bounced back from their defeats on Friday. In the day’s penultimate bout, Takakeisho (4-3) beat No. 2 Myogiryu (3-4) as the fan favorite continues his comeback after winning re-promotion to the sport’s second-highest rank.

Takayasu (3-4) resisted shoves to his face from No. 4 Tamawashi (4-3), but was under pressure with his heels against the straw bales. The ozeki, however, unleashed a powerful push that caught Tamawashi flat-footed and sent the maegashira falling over backwards. Takayasu, who earned promotion to the sport’s second-highest rank in 2017, is currently fighting as a demotion-threatened kadoban ozeki, needing at least eight wins to maintain his rank at the January meet in Tokyo.

Sekiwake Mitakeumi (3-4) snapped his losing streak at three after dominating his bout against No. 4 Kotoyuki (3-4). While Mitakeumi started on the backfoot against the 181-kg maegashira, he bounced back and pushed him toward the edge before sending him off the ring. While Mitakeumi came into the tournament eyeing his second-straight makuuchi-division championship and promotion to ozeki, those hopes were dashed after he suffered four losses in the first six days.

Hokutofuji (4-3) lost to No. 1 Daieisho (4-3) and was the only komusubi who failed to win on Day 7.

Popular komusubi Endo (3-4) posted the quickest win of the day, pushing down No. 5 Ryuden (3-4) right after the initial clash to finish the bout in 0.7 seconds.

Abi (4-3) defeated Bulgarian No. 5 Aoiyama (4-3), while Asanoyama bulldozed No. 1 Okinoumi (2-5) from the raised ring.

Among the wrestlers who started the day at 4-2, No. 8 Sadanoumi defeated No. 6 Enho (4-3) to pick up his fifth win. The Sakaigawa stable wrestler held Enho’s belt with his right hand and threw his 98-kg opponent. Sadanoumi is three wins away from achieving his third straight winning record, having posted an 8-7 record in September and a 9-6 mark in July.
