OK, since the between-basho lull is almost over, here's the answer.
What do Tochinonada, Tosanoumi, Dejima and Aminishiki (and, before
he retired, Tamakasuga too) have in common?
They have all won kinboshi against four different Yokozuna, the
only currently active rikishi to do so (I hope!):
Tochinonada: Akebono, Wakanohana III, Musashimaru, Asashoryu
Tosanoumi: Takanohana, Akebono, Wakanohana III, Musashimaru
Dejima: Takanohana, Akebono, Wakanohana III, Asashoryu
Aminishiki: Takanohana, Musashimaru, Asashoryu, Hakuho
(Tamakasuga: Takanohana, Akebono, Wakanohana III, Musashimaru.)
