Sumo: Yokozuna Terunofuji secures 1st perfect record to celebrate 6th title

Kyodo -- Nov 28
Yokozuna Terunofuji concluded the Kyushu Grand Sumo Tournament in style Sunday, with his first perfect 15-0 record for the icing on the cake of his already-clinched sixth Emperor's Cup.

Facing ozeki Takakeisho (12-3), Terunofuji was tested but got the all-important win as he more than fulfilled his duty as the sole yokozuna over the meet at Fukuoka Kokusai Center following the retirement of record 45-time winner Hakuho.

After winning his maiden meet at yokozuna in September, Terunofuji is the first wrestler since 32-time champion Taiho in 1962 to win in his first two tournaments as a grand champion.
