Injured yokozuna Hakuho, who will miss the upcoming Autumn Grand Sumo Tournament, said Friday he will have surgery on his right big toe to remove a bone chip.

Hakuho, who hurt the toe on the ninth day of the Nagoya tourney in July before he posted a disappointing 10-5 record, will be hospitalized for around a day after going under the knife on Monday.
