Yokozuna debutant Harumafuji got back to basics Tuesday, rebounding from his loss the previous day with a quick-fire win against Tochiozan on the third day of action at the Kyushu Grand Sumo Tournament.

Hakuho, meanwhile, perfectly timed a takeout maneuver of Okinoumi in the day’s final bout to headline a group of eight wrestlers, including ozeki Kisenosato, with the early lead at 3-0 as he bids for his first Emperor’s Cup in three meets.
