Hakuho proved once again to be sumo’s man of steel as he overpowered fellow yokozuna Kakuryu en route to matching the all-time record of 32 career championships on the final day of the Kyushu Grand Sumo Tournament on Sunday.

Hakuho, who won his fourth consecutive title, conquered Kakuryu in dominant fashion to stave off a playoff against his rival and capture the coveted Emperor’s Cup hardware with a 14-1 record in the final tournament of 2014.
