Fascinating! Some research on my own copy of this definitely signed Hishikawa Ryukoku triptych led me here.
Now, for further fun, check out this Eisen Kanjin ozumo triptych from the Edo-Tokyo Museum: https://ukiyo-e.org/image/etm/0193200920
The two works are almost exactly parallel in layout, particularly for the positions of wrestlers and referee in the bout, through the details do differ.
