Yokozuna Hakuho survived a scare to take out Egyptian grappler Osunaarashi on Tuesday and preserve his one-win lead heading into the final third of the Autumn Grand Sumo Tournament.

Hakuho (10-0) came perilously close to losing his first bout of the 15-day tournament after fourth-ranked maegashira Osunaarashi (4-6) knocked him off balance and had him hopping around near the edge of the ring at Ryogoku Kokugikan.
