New yokozuna Terunofuji won a tough clash of unbeaten wrestlers against Mongolian compatriot Kiribayama to improve to 5-0 and remain in the lead on Thursday, the fifth day of the Autumn Grand Sumo Tournament.

Terunofuji, the sole yokozuna fighting at the 15-day event at Tokyo’s Ryogoku Kokugikan with yokozuna Hakuho’s Miyagino stable sidelined due to coronavirus infections, is tied with unbeaten No. 17 maegashira Chiyonokuni.
