In a report from Yomiuri, Ozeki Goeido has withdrawn from the Nagoya basho. As per the preview written earlier, we had assumed that he was injured, and speculated it might be the ankle that he had rebuilt a several months ago. As of this moment, we don’t have a report of the injury.
Meisei will get the funsen win, which is much needed as he came into day 8 with a 1-6 score. Meisei now improves to 2-6.
Goeido will join Tochinoshin in being kadoban for the Aki basho in September. We hope he can return to health and be in fighting form.

Goeido? Kadoban? Aki? Where do I know this sequence of events from?…
I hope he’s able to heal up properly during his time away from the dohyo.
This really emphasizes the fragility of the Ozeki cohort. Four down to one, and long term questions lingering over both Goeido and Tochinoshin. I hope Takayasu can finally step up and move up to the next level.
And of course Takayasu gets injured today 😒
Takayasu appeared to injure his left elbow in last night’s match……hope to find out more today.
