Seventh victory of Tochinoshin on the thirteenth day of Kyushu Basho
23 November, 2018
Georgian Sumo wrestler Tochinoshin maintained seventh victory today, on the thirteenth day of Kyushu Basho. This victory is very important for him to maintain his Ozeki title.

Tomorrow Tochinoshin faces Mitakeumi Hisashi.

Why Kyushu Basho appeared to be harder for Tochinoshin?


Georgian Sumo wrestler Levan Gorgadze, Tochinoshin was among favorites of the November Kyushu Basho, but he has lost 6 and won 6 bouts out of 15 so far. Finishing Basho with positive balance is under a question mark now. If
Tochinoshin ends up with negative balance, then his title will be downgraded and he will have to fight for Ozeki title again in the following Bashos.

So what is the reason for that?

Nevertheless, preliminary period was excellent for Tichinoshin. His main opponents Yokuzuna Kakuriu and Hakuho quit the tournament due to traumas and this should have been galvanizing moment for the Georgian wrestler. His other main opponents Yokuzuna Kisenosato and Ozeki Goedo were also excluded from the Basho due to traumas. All Tochinoshin had to do was to fight and achieve victory.

The main problem for Tochinoshin appears to be fighting technique. Each of his opponents were already aware of his beloved trick – to grab mawashi or belt and drag them out of Dohyo. So other wrestlers tried their best not to let Tochinoshin grab their belt. Sadly, the Georgian wrestler did not change his technique and lost several fights.

There are three more fights left and Tochinoshin still has a chance to maintain positive balance – he needs one victory for that.

Another Georgian wrestler Teimuraz Jugheli has won 4 bouts and will return to higher Jurio League. Gagamaru took part in Makushita Division, one level below Jurio League, were wrestlers only hold 7 bouts and 4 victories is enough for being upgraded.
