Sumo champ Harumafuji investigated over 'bottle assault'

14 November 2017, 07:48 | Henrietta Morgan

A SUMO wrestling champion left a rival with a fractured skull after allegedly attacking him with a beer bottle.

Harumafuji, one of three Mongolian "yokozuna" - or sumo grand champions - apologized on Tuesday to Takanoiwa for his injuries and for "causing trouble" for Takanoiwa's stable master Takanohana. He pulled out of the Kyushu Grand Sumo Tournament that started Sunday according to the report.

They were drinking with a group of compatriots when Harumafuji was said to have become "angered by the attitude" of Takanoiwa.

For years, non-Japanese wrestlers were prohibited from obtaining the rank of yokozuna, the highest title in sumo, until 1993.

EPS for Smart & Final Stores Inc (SFS) Expected At $0.19
Finally, BidaskClub cut Burlington Stores from a "hold" rating to a "sell" rating in a research report on Tuesday, October 17th. Three research analysts have rated the stock with a hold rating and sixteen have assigned a buy rating to the company's stock.

But he deflected further questions to the "stable master" who runs the camp.

"As for Takanoiwa's injuries, I apologise deeply for causing trouble for stable master Takanohana, people affiliated with Takanohana stable, the Sumo Association and my stable master", he told reporters.

That case exposed a culture of bullying and hazing within the ancient sport's strict hierarchy.

Weighing in at 137kg (300lb), Harumafuji is considered a relatively small sumo wrestler, and is lauded for his technique in the ring.

Race to Dubai victor Henrik Stenson out of 2017 European Tour finale
Henrik Stenson has withdrawn from the European Tour's season-ending DP World Tour Championship because of a nagging rib injury. To be fair, Garcia didn't even realise his odds were as good. "I don't even know", he admitted.

Speaking to reporters at a sumo wrestlers' residence in Dazaifu, Fukuoka Prefecture, Harumafuji expressed deep remorse over the recent incident.

Another Mongolian grand champion Hakuho, seen as a gentle giant, has nearly single-handedly restored the sport's good name.

In 2016, a stable master and wrestler were made to pay almost $300,000 (£230,000) to a wrestler allegedly abused so badly that he lost sight in one eye, according to reports.

And in 2010, firebrand Mongolian grand champion Asashoryu retired after being accused of breaking a man's nose in a drunken brawl outside a Tokyo nightclub.

Borussia Dortmund Reportedly Interested in Signing Emre Can
The report suggests a deal could be place before the season is over and Dortmund are looking at getting him for FREE. It is reported Can wants a release clause included in any contract negotiation.

Violent treatment of apprentices and junior wrestlers in the name of training had always been seen as par for the course at sumo stables, but the sport is now struggling to oust such customs.
