Faces Jonokuchi 6 Ichifuji
American sumotori Wakaichiro has his 3rd match on day 5 in Osaka. In his third match, he faces Isegahama heya’s veteran Ichifuji. Ichifuji has been in sumo for over a decade, and has been weaving his way through the bottom two ranks for 63 tournaments. While he has never come up with the wins to advance to higher divisions, he has a great deal of experience, and will likely present a challenge for Wakaichiro.
Going into this match, Wakaichiro is 1-1, with a goal of achieving a majority of wins over the 7 matches during the Osaka tournament.
