A slight blow to the critics of bad manners by foreign born rikishi (and 
who might that be?).
Takamifuji (27) from Azumazeki-beya has quit sumo because of gambling debts.
He was to return to juryo for Nagoya, but when the oyakata was back from 
the Hawaii-jungyo, he found letters from the licensed loan sharks 
addressed to Takamifuji.
Debts amounting from pachinko and gambling for several years, he also 
had borrowed money from heya supporters.
Takamifuji, feeling remorse for his bad deeds, took responsibility by 
choosing haigyo.
