Yokozuna Hakuho was tripped up for a shock first defeat at the hands of sekiwake Goeido on Wednesday, throwing the door wide open in the title race on the 11th day of the Summer Grand Sumo Tournament.

Ozeki Kisenosato came through with flying colors in the previous bout against rank-and-filer Ikioi in a match of wrestlers with one defeat, putting himself in perfect position for a showdown against his longtime nemesis Hakuho on Thursday.
