Ex-Kirinowaka who was kicked out of sumo on the heels of the yaocho scandal will start his new career in puro-resu with the IGF group on February 17th (Genome 18) at the Tokyo Dome City Hall. His opponent? Well.. Bob Sapp. Akebono's first K1 opponent after he left Sumo, then the planned opponent against ex-Wakakirin (didn't show up, pissing off everyone). Let's see if he shows up this time. Ex-Wakakirin is also a member of the IGF group.

What do you get when you cross an insomniac, an agnostic and a dyslexic?

A guy who is up all night arguing with himself over whether or not there is a dog.

    Sumo is a very good thing. Though better with affordable video.

An article a couple of days ago called this a "tryout" match, after which Inoki will decide whether Kirinowaka has a longer future with the IGF group. Didn't sound quite as enthusiastic to me as the Wacky Kirin articles from his start in the puroresu biz.
