Sumo: Grand champion Kisenosato to withdraw from upcoming summer meet
Kisenosato, one of sumo's three current grand champions, will pull out from the upcoming summer tournament, his stablemaster said Friday.
The 31-year-old Kisenosato, the first Japan-born wrestler in 19 years to gain promotion to sumo's highest rank, missed all or part of the last six meets due to a left chest muscle injury.
He has only completed one full 15-day tournament since graduating to yokozuna rank in January 2017.
The 2018 summer tourney will begin Sunday at Tokyo's Ryogoku Kokugikan.
