The Japan Sumo Association will call an emergency board meeting on Wednesday to discuss the promotion of Georgian sumo wrestler, Tochinoshin, to Ozeki champion. Holding the meeting means his promotion has virtually been cemented.

Tochinoshin won his first title in the Grand Sumo Tournament in January with 14 wins and one loss.

This was a very exciting tournament. I was cheering for Tochinoshin. He is a great rikishi - great technique, style, power and inner strengh. His title is well deserved.
