Yokozuna Kisenosato said Thursday he is determined to put his injury woes behind him and make a winning comeback at the upcoming Autumn Grand Sumo Tournament after missing a record-setting eight consecutive meets.

Despite facing mounting pressure to retire from the sport, the 32-year-old grand champion, who missed all or part of the last eight tournaments due to a left chest muscle injury, is convinced he will be able to get his career back on track.
