May Grand Sumo Tournament: Foreigner vs. Foreigner

Six days into the May Grand Sumo Tournament in Tokyo, Mongolian grand champion Asashoryu and low-ranking rookie Tamakasuga share the lead at 6-0. Half of Asashoryu's bouts so far have been against other foreigners: Georgian Kokkai on Day 4, Russian Roho on Day 5, and fellow Mongolian Kyokutenho on Day 6. All the latter now stand at 2-4.
