Ikioi on Concussion Protocol

Hakuho knocked Ikioi out with an elbow to the jaw at the tachiai. Ikioi regained his senses quickly and was able to bow and leave under his own power. He will face another Hakuho KO victim tomorrow in Myogiryu. If this were American football, Ikioi would be out being examined by doctors and he’d likely be inactive tomorrow and for much of the rest of the week. One major difference is that in American football, a lineman would face dozens of charges in a single game. This being sumo, Ikioi will be back with reduced effectiveness – like Terunofuji, Gagamaru, and Amuru.
