Yokozuna Kisenosato continued his comeback run at the Autumn Grand Sumo Tournament on Tuesday, earning his first winning record since March 2017 when he clinched a second-straight top division championship.

Before fellow yokozuna Hakuho and Kakuryu closed out Day 10 of the 15-day tournament with their 10th consecutive wins, Kisenosato felt the pressure pile up from three false starts against No. 3 maegashira Endo at Ryogoku Kokugikan.

But when the action finally started, Kisenosato (8-2) wasted little time forcing his opponent from the ring. The 32-year-old yokozuna remains two wins off the lead following a pair of upsets and a string of hard-fought victories.
