Tachiai’s favorite American rikishi, Wakaichiro (若一郎), returns to the dohyo on Sunday for his 4th bout of the Kyushu basho. For a change his opponent is not from Sadogatake beya (home of Kotoshogiku), but instead he faces Sandanme 87 Daishowaka.
Like Wakaichiro, Daishowaka enters day 8 with a 1-2 record, looking for a win to pull even. Daishowaka is a 30 year old, long time sumo veteran who has participated in 87 tournaments since he started sumo in 2003, never ranking above Sandanme 16.
As always we will bring you details of his match as soon as they become available.

Sadly, the veteran got him all turned around and our favorite Texan doesn’t yet have the Uncle Sumoish grace to spin out of the way at the edge of the ring. :/
Thanks much for posting this. I do hope One and Only can return for Hatsu.
