Yokozuna Hakuho broke his silence Monday to explain himself for the first time since criticizing ringside judges for calling a do-over in his bout against ozeki Kisenosato at the New Year Grand Sumo Tournament in January.

Speaking at a press conference at the Miyagino stable’s dormitory in Sakai, Osaka Prefecture, Hakuho said he had only been speaking his mind. It was the first time he had touched on the subject since making a brief apology in a TV appearance at the end of January.
