Wakaichiro (若一郎) Drops 7th Bout


American sumotori Wakaichiro lost his final match on Friday against Ryuko, a sumo newcomer from Onoe heya competing in his first basho. In what was largely a thrusting match, Ryuko seemed to be focusing his pushes at Wakaichiro’s face, driving him from the ring.

Wakaichiro finishes the Haru basho 5-2, which is respectable. With a solid winning record, chances are good that Wakaichiro will be likely be promoted to the next higher division, Jonidan, for the May ranking sheet. His fans around the globe congratulate Wakaichiro for a solid basho and hopes to see him back in action in 2 months in Tokyo.
