Texas sumotori Wakaichiro returns to action on day 10, facing off against Sandanme 88 Hokuyozan, of Tatsunami heya. Hokuyozan is roughly the same height and weight as Wakakichiro, but is participating in his 54th basho, going all the way back to 2009. He is a seasoned professional and will bring a great deal of experience to the bout.
Wakaichiro needs to win 2 out of his last 3 matches to secure a kachi-koshi, and maintain his berth in Sandanme. We will be watching with great interest tonight. As always we will bring you results and video as soon as they are available.
