In a report from Yomiuri, Ozeki Goeido has withdrawn from the Nagoya basho.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.
