Yokozuna Hakuho appears a long shot to take part in next month’s Kyushu Grand Sumo Tournament after practicing Wednesday for the first time following knee surgery on Oct. 18.

The Mongolian wrestler had endoscopic surgery to remove a bone spur in his right knee and also underwent a procedure to clean out loose cartilage in his right ankle. He was unable to put full pressure on the knee Wednesday with just 11 days remaining until the start of the 15-day tourney in Fukuoka.
