Via the Sumo Forum, promotions to Juryo have been announced. Four slots were open following retirements by Kisenosato, Takanoiwa, and Takekaze and impending demotion of Jokoryu. As expected, these will be filled by two brand-new sekitori and two returning ones. The newcomers are Kiribayama (Ms1w 4-3) and Ones To Watch Wakamotoharu (Ms3w 7-0 Yusho), Wakatakakage’s older brother. The men returning to the salaried ranks are Daiseido (Ms1e 4-3), back after 7 basho, and Takanofuji (Ms3e 5-2), the wrestler formerly known as Takayoshitoshi, back after 5 basho, who is joining his twin Takagenji in the second division.
