Saw a Japanese article to that effect the other day... Any confirmation from inside the amasumo circles?

In this case, i think that the IFS should consulted all world sumo federations to find a replacement. This is the third SWC has been cancelled.

I think the IFS can't govern the sumo sport in that way, it's not fair for all the sumotoris and the sumo fans.

There are a lot of European Federations that could organize the sumo world champion inmediately.

Unfortunately in south american we don't have that kind of union and organization.

I really hope this year they can arrive to a fair solution.

I really think the IFS needs to consider moving to having the SWC every second year and making sure it is a fabulous event. That said, I expect that everything will be fine next year with it being scheduled for Hong Kong. Mr Mak, the head of HK sumo, is very well respected by the Japanese members of the IFS executive (which is about all of them) and will secure the necessary funding to back up the event.
