I don't believe the banzuke makers normally take head-to-head results
into account when deciding demotions - just the raw numbers (Think how
long it wold take if they had to cross-reference every rikishi's basho
results when calculating the new banzuke.)

At J14E, Gagamaru must surely win today to remain in Juryo, no matter
what else is happening around him.
