Record Now 3-3, One Bout Remaining For Natsu
During this morning’s Jonidan matches, American sumotori Wakaichiro lost his match against veteran Wakakoki. With this loss, Wakaichro needs to win his final match to secure his kachi-koshi, or winning record. A losing record would likely mean a small demotion to a lower rank in Jonidan, but it is unlikely he would face a return to Jonikuchi.
Wakaichro has shown remarkable improvement over his performance at Osaka, but is still gaining core sumo skills. When facing rikishi with 7 to 9 years of experience, he is forced to think fast and move faster. His fans in the US are confident that Wakaichiro will prevail, as he is part of a great stable and has fantastic coaches.
As always, we will bring you video of his match when it appears on YouTube.
