Yokozuna Asashouryuu went to Kasugano beya to train yesterday. Even though
he won all 10 of his bouts, he was in a foul mood. "Back off", he shouted at
the hordes of reporters who followed him, hoping to get a juicy response to
Musashigawa's threats of kicking him out if he continues to misbehave. He
calmed down a bit upon returning to Takasago. "I went kyujo in Nagoya, so I
know I better gambarize.. I still lack stamina, but my strength is close to
usual now", he said. It's the first time since his Yokozuna promotion that
he has gone for degeiko for 4 days running. 'Still', when a photographer
attempted to get a low angle shot, he barked at him- "STOP IT!!"
He has regressed into "rude" mode, says the kind article.
Wakanohou: "I intend to sue them. All I want is to get back in the ring and
continue where I left off.."
Musashigawa: "If he wants to sue, we'll just have to counter, won't we.."
In the meantime, the Tokyo District Public Prosecutor's Office has formally
announced today that Wakanohou will not be indicted for drug possession. The
small amount found, coupled with this being his first offense, coupled with
the fact he was a minor at the time of his arrest, prompted them to drop the
charges. As for Rohou, he is demanding answers form the Prevention
Convention concerning the testing procedures and intends to sue them. When
asked if would be suing together with Wakanohou, he answered: "NO!".
