Defeated By Former Makushita 15 Wakayama
Early in day 8, Texas rikishi Wakaichiro faced his toughest opponent yet, Onomatsu heya’s Wakayama, who is starting over in Jonokuchi after spending a year away from sumo. In the video above, Wakaichiro is clearly overwhelmed by the experienced, older and larger rikishi.
In spite of the loss, Wakaichiro is at 2-2 with 3 matches remaining, and a solid chance of kachi-koshi in his first basho. As always, Tachiai is following Wakaichiro and will bring sumo fans all the updates.
