Wakaichiro Loses Fourth Bout

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.
