Yokuzuna Asashoryu Retires from Sumo
Yokuzuna Asashoryu announced his retirement from sumo on Thursday. Asashoryu is recognised as one of the strongest sumo wrestlers of the modern times. Unfortunately, his frequent misbehaviour also made him one of the most controversial grand champions of all time. The 29 year old Mongolian announced his retirement amid an investigation by the sumo association into his alleged beating of a man in a drunken rampage in Tokyo last month.
