13th Day: TOCHIAZUMA STANDS ALONE
There come a big chance for Ozeki Tochiazuma, who beat Bulgarian Ozeki Kotooshu at Tokyo's Ryogoku on 13th Day of January Grand Sumo Tournament. The Japanese Ozeki stood alone at the head with a 12-1 result while Maegashira Hokutoriki was defeated by Sekiwake Hokuho and Yokozuna Asashoryu was given the 3rd loss by Maegashira Ama.
Tochiazuma looks for tomorrow's win against Hokutoriki to lift the Emperor's Cup Sunday. Hakuho meets Maegashira Tokitsuumi to keep the 2-loss result each other.
We could see the end of Asashoryu Dynasty ?
