Takanoiwa Withdraws From Natsu


Delivers Harumafuji A Default Win

At the start of day 12 in Tokyo, it was announced via the sumo press that Maegashira 5 East Takanoiwa had withdrawn from Natsu due to injury. We wish him a speedy and complete recovery.

As a result, Yokozuna Harumafuji improves to 11-1 via the default win, and loses out on a fat stack of kensho that was likely coming his way.
