    Ex-Kakureizan dead

    Very sad news indeed. Swami

    Where Are All Of The Hawaiian Rikishi?

    Yes, I'm surprised that Musashimaru hasn't built up contacts like Takamiyama did, which resulted in recruiting both Konishiki and Akebono. Swami

    Where Are All Of The Hawaiian Rikishi?

    For the information of British fans, Konishiki features tonight at 2100 Channel 4 with Paul Hollywood. Swami

    New ozeki Asanoyama

    Any idea yet who is likely to become his new shisho when Asashio reaches 65 in December? Swami

    Asahifuji kanreki dohyo-iri

    Kitanofuji performed his after he had left the association (voluntarily), with Chiyonofuji & Hokutoumi as his attendants, so perhaps that would work OK, with Harumafuji participating. Yes, I agree it looks unlikely that Onokuni will be fit enough for his kanreki - although they didn't think Tochinishiki or Taiho would have completed theirs, and both did with relative ease. Swami

    44th Fuji TV Grand Sumo Tournament

    The OB bouts are a far cry from what they were when they first started, you had Kitanoumi v Wakanohana II, Takanohana I v Asahikuni, Masuiyama II v Kaiketsu, Mienoumi v Takanosato, Hokutenyu v Asashio (1991), then 1992 you had Kitanoumi v Wakanohana II, Chiyonofuji v Hokutenyu. Swami

    Hatsu 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    I reckon Kakuryu will be next to retire and despite what he says about being around for the Olympics, Hakuho won't be far behind. He can't keep on withdrawing indefinitely. Swami

    Goeido to Retire

    It used to be that ozeki demotions were relatively rare, now it is quite rare for those ozeki who failed to make Yokozuna to end their careers as ozeki. Technically Goeido has ended his career as ozeki, the last ones prior to him were Kaio, Tochiazuma and Musoyama - and further back would be Hokutenyu, Asashio and Wakashimazu. The struggle for kabu is obviously an issue, Kirishima was the first one to really continue after demotion (in fairly recent time) because of that. Swami

    Terunofuji Watch

    Presumably he will only get promoted to the top of Juryo for March, had he won 15-0 there might have been a chance of promotion. Swami

    Asahifuji kanreki dohyo-iri

    Who will be his attendants? His only contemporaries are Hokutoumi and Onokuni. Swami

    Terunofuji Watch

    He needs to tailor his attack more according to his opponent, as others have said using the kimedashi style for the vast majority of the time will surely result in more knee trouble. I'll stick my neck out and guess he might win 9 or 10 this time - might! Swami

    Azumazeki-oyakata has died

    Very sad news at such a young age. Swami

    How far will Terunofuji go?

    Perhaps mid-to-lower maegashira. Swami
