Mongolian yokozuna Hakuho and maiden-title chasing ozeki Kisenosato each had a convincing outing to notch up another victory on Wednesday, the 11th day of the Summer Grand Sumo Tournament.

After a false start, Hakuho couldn’t get a hold of New Year champion Kotoshogiku’s (6-5) belt off the tachiai, but quickly stepped aside to his right to see the ozeki wobbling forward, and held his neck from above before throwing him down and out of the ring.
