Sumo - Grand champion Harumafuji to retire: sumo association

TOKYO (Reuters) - Sumo grand champion Harumafuji has informed the Japan Sumo Association of his intent to retire, an association spokesman said, following the Mongolian’s assault of a junior wrestler.

Harumafuji’s “oyakata” Isegahama, who runs the gym, or “stable” where Harumafuji trains, informed the association on the grand champion’s behalf, the spokesman said.
