Miyagino stablemaster — former yokozuna Hakuho — announced on Monday that his topknot-cutting and retirement ceremony will take place on Jan. 28 at Tokyo's Ryogoku Kokugikan.

The legendary figure spoke haltingly and with long pauses during a 20-minute online news conference that was short on details about his upcoming event.

That lack of specifics was the most noticeable aspect of a Zoom call in which the 45-time Emperor’s Cup winner repeatedly declined to offer extra information when asked about what kind of activities might be part of the day’s proceedings, saying only that “details will be released one by one” over the intervening period.
