Texas sumotori Wakaichiro enters his final match with a 3-3 record, and the outcome of this last bout determines if he ends the tournament with a winning or losing record. His opponent on day 14 is Sandanme 99 Fudano, from Azumazeki heya. Fudano is a recent newcomer to sumo, who has been ranked as high as Sd95 in May of 2017.
A win would mean that Wakaichiro would stay in Sandanme for the Aki tournament in Tokyo, and a loss would signal a likely demotion to the top ranks of Jonidan. As with his prior matches, we will bring you news of the results as soon as we know them.
