Too Much Damage To Continue.
Sadly, Yokozuna Kisenosato has announced that he is withdrawing from the Nagoya basho, effective on day 6. This means that his opponent Kotoshogiku picks up his second win of the tournament. Kisenosato is still nursing his left pectoral tear (and subsequent complications), and an now add to that damage to his left ankle, courtesy of a flying toss from the dohyo supplied by his day 5 opponent, Ikioi.
Tachiai thinks that it would be best for Kisenosato to concede that he is in rough and declining physical condition, and just sign up for a multi month surgical and recuperation cycle. We wish him a speedy recovery.
