Winter jungyo 2018

Recommended Posts

On Dec. 5th, a jungyo will be in Yukuhashi, after 25 year again one in the Keichiku region. Nearby local Shohozan and Tamawashi were on location with jungyo man Tatsutagawa (Homasho).

This time they really signed and not sealed the contract:

Those 17 days make it 91 jungyo days this year. The last time of more than 90 days in one year (which is the amount of hon-basho days) were 93 days in 1992 - at the Waka-Taka ozumo boom http://www.sanspo.com/sports/news/20180921/sum18092119300013-n1.html

Ikioi is kyujo for the Aki jungyo (and thus still unmarried), but before, on the 27th he was fit enough to go to Okinawa for jungyo PR - to the home pref. of his fiancee http://www.okinawatimes.co.jp/articles/-/326655
