Hakuho moved into a tie for the lead with fellow yokozuna Kakuryu at the Kyushu Grand Sumo Tournament on Wednesday as the year’s last meet heads into the stretch run.

Kakuryu, who is seeking his second career title, suffered his first defeat of the basho at the hands of ozeki Kisenosato (9-2), who chased the yokozuna around the ring before giving him one final push to stay within a win of the leaders at 10-1.
