Mongolian yokozuna Hakuho and ozeki Kisenosato maintained their perfect starts but yokozuna Kakuryu suffered his second defeat on Saturday, the seventh day of the Summer Grand Sumo Tournament.

Hakuho made a rare false start against his frequent victim Aoiyama (2-5), and was repeatedly put on his back foot by the No. 3 maegashira. But the Bulgarian inexplicably lost his balance trying to charge and floored himself for his 16th loss in 17 career bouts against the yokozuna.
