Mongolian ozeki Terunofuji outmuscled winless No. 2 maegashira Sadanofuji on Saturday to retain sole possession of the lead at the end of the first week of the Autumn Grand Sumo Tournament.

After a brief exchange of thrusts, Terunofuji and Sadanofuji got locked in a mid-ring stalemate, but the ozeki broke it up and with a firm left-handed grip on Sadanofuji’s belt, worked him over the bales to stay perfect at 7-0.
