Fukuoka – Top-ranked maegashira Takayasu grabbed the outright lead at the Kyushu Grand Sumo Tournament on Friday with a helping hand from ozeki Takakeisho.
Takayasu defeated one of his overnight co-leaders, No. 13 Oho, before Takakeisho took care of the other, sekiwake Hoshoryu, on Day 13 at Fukuoka Kokusai Center.
A former ozeki, Takayasu (11-2), is bidding for his maiden Emperor’s Cup at the 15-day tournament after coming close in September and March.
