Sumo March Haru Basho Day 12
Ms23w Kyokutaisei (4-1) vs Ms20w Wakamisho (4-1)
At the moment, Kykoutaisei is out of contention for his division's title, but with a win here, he'd go into the 2nd group with Osunaarashi and others.
J8w Takanoyama (4-7) vs J6w Tanzo (5-6)
Takanoyama needs to win here in order to avoid demotion.
M11w Jokoryu (6-5) vs M10w Tamawashi (3-8)
M7e Okinoumi (9-2) vs M8e Aoiyama (7-4)
S1e Goeido (7-4) vs M4e Toyonoshima (7-4)
M2w Myogiryu (5-6) vs S1w Baruto (7-4)
Baruto only needs one more win to stay safe, but he could use as many as he can to get back on the road to Ozeki.
O2e Kakuryu (6-5) vs M3w Ikioi (2-9)
Y1e Harumafuji (8-3) vs O2w Kotoshogiku (7-4)
O1e Kisenosato (7-4) vs Y1w Hakuho (11-0)
Hakuho will atleast tie for the title with a win today, though there would have to be playoffs. Suffice to say, he's a pretty safe bet.
