This very pale print shows a sumo fight between sumo champion UMEGATANI and another sumo fighter, maybe Yosuke Yamashima, but I can't find this name anywhere.Can you confirm/correct this last player's name?
Also, it is said the emperor was impressed by UMEGATANI fight on March 10 1884. Is it possible the man on the right of the print is the emperor, which would help date the print in 1884...
