I thought you only had to take part in a maezumo match to move on to Jonokuchi, so what are the 3-win rikishi qualifying for?

Morimune (aka "baseball boy") was really unimpressive - seemed rather reluctant and unsure in his matches.

They are qualified to be finished with mae-zumo. All rikishi are in until they get the required number of wins (or mae-zumo is over), and the order of qualifying determines their place in the shin-deshi presentation.

Updating the Hatsu maezumo class during their first Jonokuchi basho.

After day 3:

1-0 record

Omori, Ishiura, Kotoseigo, Shimada, Baraki, Umetsu, Ogata, and Morimune.

Morimune (the former Koshien pitcher ("baseball boy") who failed testing to join the air force) was winless during maezumo. Baraki is the fellow who had "height issues". Ishiura was going to be in a movie with Hugh Jackman, but decided to do sumo instead.

Banzuke returnee Tamaseiryu, who also did maezumo in January, is 1-0 too.

1-1 record

Onosho, Kaiho and Kimishima

Kaiho was known as Sanjo during maezumo

0-2 record

Majima, Hamagami, and Nishihata

Hiroshima is kyujo, presumably from the leg injury he suffered during maezumo.

a future sanyaku (for just one basho) in front of you.

not of the same fighting style with the previous Kaiho i would guess. Maybe the next Dejima ... ??

btw ... thank you Fay

He's got to be one of the few rikishi currently on the banzuke who doesn't 'look like Kaiho'. Weight-wise he is about 90% of the weight of Tenkaiho, so I suppose that he could be referred to as 9Kaiho.;-)

don't talk about my "son" like that ... :-P

he will lose 40 kilos (!!!!!) in the next couple of months and then regain them in the right places in the following years. He is a future sanyaku i tell you !!!

he could be the Ozeki that Yokozuna Kyokushuho will need i order to improve his own sumo.

(i will stop dreaming now and will just hope for a Makuuchi career) (In jonokuchi...)

(Dohyo-iri...)
