10th Day: UNBEATEN HOKUTORIKI LOSES
I'm disappointed that the lower-ranked Maegashira Hokutoriki had been defeated by Maegashira Tokitsuumi at Ryogoku Kokugikan on the 10th Day of January Grand Sumo Tournament. Then a 9-1 result of Hokutoriki was located in a line with those of Ozeki Tochiazuma and Yokozuna Asashoryu, who both had piled victories against Maegashira Iwakiyama and Sekiwake Kotomitsuki on same day.
Tomorrow, Hokutoriki has a tie against the lowest Maegashira Kitazakura while Tochiazuma and Asashoryu meet Maegashira Kokkai and Iwakiyama.
Hokutoriki, DO YOUR BEST until meeting them !
