We need him to comprehend that what he's doing may cause accidents to enthusiastic spectators."
Hakuho will enter their tenth 12 months as yokozuna with all the Nagoya event set to take place in July. "whenever one achieves the condition of yokozuna, everyone else fawns over him, " Moriya stated, recommending Hakuho was being arrogant.
