Harumafuji has confirmed that he will be wrestling in this upcoming basho. His first opponent, the Mongolian Giant, Ichinojo. Harumafuji is going to have to be incredibly focused going into the first day. Ichi is out to prove he belongs in the top division.
Keys to a Harumafuji win : Keep Ichi off his belt and off balance. Disorient him with thrusts out of the gate and keep him circling. Bring back that circling technique. Much like this.
Keys to an Ichinojo victory : Get a deep belt grip and keep his weight centered driving Harumfuji to the edge, but be mindful of Harumafuji turning and throwing.
