The 2nd New Year bullfighting tournament, sponsored by the Ginowan-Bullfighting Union and the Ryukyu Shimpo Co., was held at the Ishikawa Multipurpose Dome in Uruma. The Yokozuna match between top ranked bulls was a showcase matchup between the two huge fighting bulls. Ishiyama Harukao however had earlier won against Soreike Typhoon. Typhoon lost its fighting spirit against the overpowering opponent.

According to pre-match predictions, for the Ozeki match between the second ranked bulls, the four consecutive winner Sento Ufushu was outright favorite to win. The key point of the bout was to what extent old-stager bull Aranami could fight well. However, as soon as the fight started, Aranami pushed its opponent to the bank of the ring with its horns, and knocked off the strong rival.

Kyuna Ryuriki and Taishin Ayakaze won their debut matches beating their opponents using overwhelming power.
