In early action in Kyushu, Musashigawa rikishi Wakaichiro defeated Miyakogawa, improving his record against him to 2-0, and picking up his first win of the November tournament. For his fans this is a great start, and he showed better fighting form from September.
In the image above, you can clearly see the up-armor bolstering around both knees. There had been some word that Wakaichiro had been working to recover from knee injuries in the prior months.
With the win, Wakaichiro starts Kyushu 1-0, and will possibly fight again day 3.
