Yokozuna Kakuryu reclaimed the sole lead at the Nagoya Grand Sumo Tournament on Saturday as yokozuna rival Hakuho suffered a shock loss to former ozeki Kotoshogiku with one day remaining at the 15-day tournament.

Kakuryu will go into the final day with a one-win lead over Hakuho at Dolphins Arena. No. 16 maegashira Terutsuyoshi, the only other wrestler in the title hunt, missed his bid for a maiden championship with a loss to No. 1 Hokutofuji.
