Two months after spoiling Hakuho’s perfect record in May, veteran sekiwake Goeido handed the yokozuna his first loss of the Nagoya Grand Sumo Tournament on Wednesday.

Goeido (9-2) fought the yokozuna to a standstill on the tachiai, countering his every move until Hakuho attempted to throw his opponent and poor footwork spelled disaster. He did manage a throw, but collapsed under the sekiwake to see his record drop to 10-1 after 11 days at Aichi Prefectural Gymnasium. It was Goeido’s fourth victory against Hakuho in 27 career bouts.
