5th Bout Is Scheduled Tuesday Morning
American sumotori Wakaichiro will face his fifth opponent on day 10, with an opportunity to pull to a winning record again. His match on Tuesday is against Asanoshima, a rikishi from Kagoshima who is part of the Takasago stable. Asanoshima first entered sumo in 2005, and dropped out for several years before reappearing in 2008. For the bulk of his tournaments he has been ranked Jonidan (44) or Jonokuchi (3). So this is another match where Wakaichiro will be facing a veteran, with a chance to demonstrate his skill, strength and speed.
As always, we will bring you video of his match as soon as it hits the web.
