Yokozuna Kakuryu rebounded from the previous day’s defeat with a demolition of Tochinoshin while Hakuho made road kill of would-be challenger Takarafuji to move one step closer to taking sole ownership of the all-time record at the New Year Grand Sumo Tournament on Tuesday.

Harumafuji, sumo’s third top-ranked wrestler, who steamrolled Ikioi in the day’s finale, features along with Hakuho in a group of five wrestlers with the early lead at 3-0 at 15-day competition.
