from International Herald Tribune:
OSAKA, Japan: Mongolian grand champion Hakuho won the Spring Grand Sumo Tournament on Saturday before he even stepped into the ring.
Undefeated grand champion Hakuho won his 10th career title without ever having to lift a pinky on the 14th day of the Spring Grand Sumo Tournament on Saturday.
Kotooshu's victory over yokozuna Asashoryu (11-3) in the day's penultimate bout gave Hakuho (14-0) a two-win cushion over his closest rival with only one day to play at Osaka Prefectural Gymnasium.

Mongolian Hakuho overpowered compatriot and fellow grand champion Asashoryu on Sunday to finish the Spring Grand Sumo Tournament with a perfect 15-0 record.
The result was never in doubt after Hakuho secured a left-hand grip on the front of Asashoryu's belt. Asashoryu (11-4) bowed to the inevitable, and cut a subdued figure as he stepped out to his fourth loss in six days.
