Jonokuchi ranked American, Wakaichiro, will have his 6th bout on day 11, early in the morning at the Kokugikan. He faces Jonokuchi 13 Kenshin from Sakaigawa beya. Kenshin has been ranked as high as Sandanme (2 divisions higher) in the past, but missed several tournaments.
A win on day 11 against Kenshin would secure his kachi-koshi; which, given the level of opponents he has faced, would be a good accomplishment for his first basho. As always, Tachiai is ready to bring you all the Wakaichiro news we can find.
