Sumo Wrestling's Newest Ozeki - Tochinoshin!
I first want to congratulate Yokozuna Kakuryu for his 5th Yusho (tournament win). He was dominate over the 15 days and easily handled both Hakuho and Tochinoshin. Here are Kakuryu's two latest cards in the 2018 BBM Rikishi set.
We also have sumo's newest Ozeki. Sekiwake Tochinoshin was notified this weekend that he would be listed as an Ozeki on the banzuke. According to Sumo Reference, Tochinoshin is sumo's 257th Ozeki with 56 of those Ozeki going on to become Yokozuna. Congrats to Tochinoshin. Here are two of Tochinoshin's cards from the 2018 BBM Rikishi Set as well.
