Kakuryu used his leverage to work Aoiyama (5-4) out of the ring and stay in the lead with a perfect 9-0 record. Hakuho quickly threw Ichinojo to stay one back off Kakuryu’s pace and remain in the hunt for his 32nd title. 237 more words

November Tournament: Day 5

Kakuryu contines to contest Hakuho for the tournament title. Both stand undefeated at 5-0.

Harumafuji gave up another kinboshi! This time the lucky maegashira is Tochiozan at maegashira #1. Hopefully Harumafuji can bounce back strongly and finish with at least 12 wins for the tournament. 265 more words
