Sumo - Kyushu Basho

相撲 九州

The Essential Guide to Sumo The Kyushu Grand Sumo Tournament held at the Fukuoka Kokusai Center begins today.

Mongolian yokozuna Asashoryu 朝青龍 can claim two records by winning this tournament: 7 consecutive wins and a Grand Slam of tournament victories for the year.

His main challenger, as in the previous basho, could well be up-and-coming 22 year old sekiwake Kotooshu 琴欧州 - the Bulgarian is also hoping to gain promotion to ozeki rank with a good showing and a majority of wins.
