Texas Sumotori Returns Stronger And Ready To Fight.
Tachiai readers know that we are firm supporters of the young rikishi from Texas, Ichirio Young who fights for the Musashigawa-beya, with the shikona Wakaichiro (若一郎)
His first full basho was the Hatsu tournament in Tokyo, where he finished with a respectable 3-4 record (Jonokuchi only fight 7 bouts in a basho), and is ranked Jonokuchi 5 up from Jonokuchi 17 for Haru.
The Tachiai team are expecting to see a stronger, more confident Wakaichiro in Osaka, and there is a good chance he may promote out of Jonokuchi if he can secure a winning record.
As always, we will strive to bring you video of Wakaichiro’s bouts as soon as we can find them on the web.
