In their regular post-basho meeting, Yokozuna
Deliberation Committee members discussed a so-called
expose published by a weekly magazine "Shukan Gendai"
on Asashoryu's "Yaocho".
According to the article in ther January 22 issue,
Asashoryu asked and arranged to have certain Makuuchi
rikishis about throwing their bout so he could get
all-win yusho at the Kyushu basho last year.
"This story is totally lacking in truth and the Kyokai
should take a proper stand," commented Yoshio
Ishibashi, chairman of the committee. "Takasago
oyakata has asked Asashoryu about this and he told us
the yokozuna categorically denied the allegation,"
Makiko Uchidate added.
"I have not read the piece, so I can't comment,"
Kitanoumi oyakata, chairman of the Kyokai told reporters.
