Kakuryu’s fiancee, Dashnyam Munkhzaya, is expecting the couple’s first child in May. The two met in Mongolia in 2013. Since then he has won his first yusho and been promoted to yokozuna so hopefully this bodes well for their nuptuals. In a statement, Kakuryu stated that right now his primary goal is to win his first yusho as yokozuna. Given the drama of November’s tournament, where he led for several days, it is certainly possible.
