NOVEMBER GRAND SUMO TOURNAMENT
Musashimaru moves to 3-0
Yokozuna Musashimaru (Fiamalu Penitani, Wai'anae) forced No. 3-ranked maegashira Tamakasuga out of the ring with a series of quick arm thrusts to improve to 3-0.
The 31-year-old Musashimaru, looking for his second straight Emperor's Cup, is the only grand champion wrestling at Fukuoka Kokusai Center in southern Japan. Fellow yokozuna Takanohana pulled out Friday due to a persistent knee injury.
