Sumo final day

This is about as good as sumo gets...the final bout on the final day, both wrestlers are on 13-1 records and fighting for the title:



On the right is Asashouryuu, the "bad boy" of sumo, who was the sole Yokozuna (top rank) for some time, but who has been banned for the last couple of competitions. On the left is Hakuho, who has won in Asa's absence, and as a result was also promoted to Yokozuna.

And you thought it was just two fat men trying to give each other wedgies.
