Haukho Aims For 50 Championships

Seven away from a historic 50 career championships. Hakuho plans to reach that mark following his most recent win at the Kyushu Grand Sumo Tournament.

“I’m not sure (when I can accomplish it), it may be two years or three years from now,” said Hakuho at a news conference in Fukuoka.

“I suffered an injury on the final day (of the March tournament) and my doctor said I wouldn’t be able to completely recover. I thought I would never be able to accomplish (winning a championship) again,” he said.

“(Their absence) made me think that I need to keep myself together,” he said of some of the sport’s top competitors missing the tournament that saw the Yokozuna nearly run the table.
