Mongolian upstart Ichinojo saw his sensational start at the Autumn Grand Sumo Tournament come to a crashing halt on Saturday as yokozuna Hakuho and Kakuryu moved into a two-way lead heading into the second week of the 15-day basho in Tokyo.

Hakuho and Kakuryu both remained perfect at 7-0, while Ichinojo dropped out of the leading Mongolian trio to share second at 6-1 with ozeki Kisenosato and No. 15 maegashira Okinoumi.
