Takakeisho pulled off a big win at the Autumn Grand Sumo Tournament on Wednesday, defeating ozeki Tochinoshin to remain in a tie for the lead in his bid to get re-promoted and win a second top-division title.

The young sekiwake earned his fourth-straight win of the 15-day meet at Tokyo’s Ryogoku Kokugikan, where three of the five joint leaders dropped off the pace. Rank-and-filer Meisei also improved to 9-2 to retain a share of the lead.
