Sumo has no shortage of legends.

From titanic yokozuna that dominated in the ring, to plucky underdogs that achieved far more than a lack of size would have seemed to allow, the sport has never lacked stars and celebrities.

Indeed, yokozuna Hakuho, the man leading the current tournament is arguably the greatest wrestler of all time, and has had a career that puts him in the same conversation as superstars like Michael Jordan and Wayne Gretzky.
