A sumo wrestler who successfully fought match-fixing allegations vowed Friday he will come back fighting at the Nagoya tournament, which starts this weekend.
"I will go all out," Sokokurai told Japanese media at his training facility in Nagoya, central Japan, as he geared up for his first official bout in more than two years.
"My condition is not bad," said the 29-year-old from the Inner Mongolia region of China, ahead of the 15-day tournament.
"I have no fear. I have done what I should do," added the wrestler, whose real name is Enhetubuxin.
