Faces Jonokuchi 10 Ogiryu
On day three we get more action from Tachiai’s favorite Jonokuchi, American sumotori Wakaichiro. He is back in action in the early hours of Tuesday. Today he faces long-time hapless rikishi Ogiryu from the Tokitsukaze beya. Ogiryu is originally from Sapporo, and first joined sumo in May of 2013. Since then he as been floating between Jonidan and Jonokuchi. He has been kyujo several times, and has had to return to Mae-zumo twice. While we feel sorry for the poor guy, we eagerly await news of Wakaichiro blasting him off the dohyo.
As always we will bring you video of Wakaichiro’s second match as soon as we find it online.
Oh yeah, on the image – it’s a Texas thing. Go Texas Sumo!
