Hakuho Surgery Monday For Toe Injury


According to the Japan Times, Yokozuna Hakuho will undergo surgery to remove at least one bone chip from his right big toe. He will be hospitalized for a day. Also from the Times

He was also diagnosed with a damaged tendon and inflammation to his right ankle as well as left knee joint derangement, the certificate said.

“It aches when I sit in a ritual squat probably because (the bone chip) moves around inside,” Hakuho told reporters.

And that, dear readers, is why I am thankful he is sitting out the Aki basho. Cure the knee and we get to enjoy more Hakuho for years to come. Let it get worse, and it’s retirement for the Boss.
