Yokozuna Kakuryu relinquished his perfect record and his sole lead Friday in a shock loss to No. 7 maegashira Tomokaze at the Nagoya Grand Sumo Tournament.

Kakuryu fell into a tie with his fellow yokozuna Hakuho at 12-1 with two days remaining at the 15-day meet at Dolphins Arena. No. 16 maegashira Terutsuyoshi is one win behind the leaders and the only other wrestler with a chance to seize the championship.
