Following his day 12 loss to Mitakeumi, Yokozuna Hakuho has withdrawn from the July Tokyo basho, citing injury to his right knee. As reported by Inside Sport Japan a short time ago:
His day 13 opponent was Shodai, who will will improve to 10-3. Does this mean that Shodai is on an Ozeki run? Hard to say if they will count a fusensho as one of his wins, but hey – it’s Shodai.
We hope “The Boss” can heal up and return to action for the next tournament, whenever that may be.
