Entering day 9 with a 1-3 record, Wakaichiro is looking to reverse his fortune and pick up his second win of the Nagoya tournament. On Monday he faces Mienosato from Kasugano heya. Mienosato is a veteran with 45 tournaments to his name, though he has never ranked above Sandanme 40. As we have seen before, it will be the relative newcomer in Wakaichro going against long serving rikishi who for a sort of “skill barrier” between up and coming wrestlers and higher ranks. Mienosato seems especially keen to defeat his opponents with pull down / slap down techniques.
As always we will bring results as soon as we know them, and video as soon as we can find it.
