You take it to the sumo wrestling match.
Before I answer your question, you need to know how a sumo match is won. The winner of a sumo match is either 1. the first wrestler to force his opponent to step out of the ring, or 2. the first wrestler to force his opponent to touch the ground with any part of his body other than the sole of his feet. Because of these rules, being heavy in sumo wrestling usually gives you an advantage. That is why we often see heavy or big sumo wrestlers. However, a smaller wrestler can use his skill to overcome his opponent.
No they are not.
