Yokozuna Kakuryu, looking for his third straight championship, was dominating on Sunday, the first day of the Nagoya Grand Sumo Tournament.

The Mongolian managed to corral livewire komusubi Shohozan and thrust him out in the opening day finale of the 15-day meet at Dolphins Arena. The yokozuna's win was his 13th in 15 career bouts against Shohozan.
