Undefeated yokozuna Hakuho outmaneuvered would-be challenger Yoshikaze in a sumo clinic to win his eighth match at the Summer Grand Sumo Tournament on Sunday.

Hakuho improved to 8-0 while ozeki Kisenosato and rank-and-filer Ikioi are one off the pace at 7-1. Yokozuna debutant Kakuryu bounced back from the previous day’s loss but received a shower of boos from the crowd for a listless performance.
