The oldest current salaried level rikishi, 36 year old Kotoshogiku will make a return to the Kokugikan on the 19th. He had injured his left calf in a match against Meisei on Tuesday, and painfully withdrew on day 4. At only one win, the former Ozeki (now M11) would be almost guaranteed to drop to the second division in November if he did not come back to rack up at least a few more wins. And it would be his first time back in Juryo since 2005. His day 7 opponent will be “little” M9 Enho (1-5), who himself is desperate to start posting white stars. Enho has beaten Kotoshogiku in both of their previous meetings.
