Kisenosato came through his toughest test yet with flying colors on Monday, blasting out fellow ozeki Goeido to stay tied for the lead at 9-0 with yokozuna Hakuho at the Summer Grand Sumo Tournament.

Goeido (7-2) took the initiative at the tachiai, knocking back Kisenosato with a low head charge at Ryogoku Kokugikan. But Kisenosato weathered that early storm and surged forward to gain control and bump Goeido off the ring from behind.
