During the morning Jonidan matches in Tokyo, Texas Sumotori Wakaichiro defeated Izumigawa, improving his tournament record to 5-1. Kimarite (winning move) was okuridashi, and as you can see from the video, Wakaichiro blasts Izumigawa from the dohyo.
With this win, Wakaichiro is deeper into kachi-koshi territory, and may be eligible for promotion back to the bottom rungs of the next highest division, Sandanme. Wakaichiro has one bout remaining in the Hatsu basho, so it is possible he may still improve his record.
Go Texas Sumo!

Izumigawa Looked afraid to engage
Definitely. Especially clear on replay. He wants no part of this!
It’s the hair!
He’ll be in Sandame for sure; the only question is how high up.
