Yokozuna Kakuryu raised the bar with an impregnable display of force against would-be challenger Terunofuji to remain undefeated in his bid for his second career Emperor’s Cup at the Kyushu Grand Sumo Tournament on Tuesday.

Kakuryu leads at 10-0 with five days remaining at the 15-day meet, while rival and fellow yokozuna Hakuho improved to 9-1 with a whitewash of newly promoted Aoiyama (5-5) in the day’s finale.
