9th Day: MONGOLIANS STAY AS RUSSIAN BACKS
2 Mongolian rikishies were left on the top result of one-loss on the 9th day of September Grand Sumo Tournament. Maegashira Roho steped backward when the Russian was defeated by Yokozuna Asashoryu. In a while, Maegashira Ama got out Maegashira Baruto by a rare finish, Fumidashi.
Next Day, the Mongolian Yokozuna faces Sekiwake Kotomitsuki. And Ama meets Homasho but the 22-year-old Mongolian has difficult ties with top-ranked wrestler yet, which includes the Yokozuna if he kept the result.
Hang in there, Ama!
