Disaster struck for yokozuna debutant Kakuryu after he was sent out to a second defeat at the hands of newly promoted komusubi Chiyootori on the seventh day of the Summer Grand Sumo Tournament on Saturday.

Hakuho, meanwhile, rolled to 7-0 with another ironclad performance against hapless veteran Kyokutenho (0-7) in the day’s finale to move a step closer to winning his 29th career championship. Ozeki Kisenosato is one behind the yokozuna along with rank-and-filers Kitataiki and Ikioi at 6-1.
