SPECIAL TRIBUTE TO FUJINISHIKI
Sumo world was sad after the bad news of Fujinishiki's death,
in 2003 december, 17th.
Ex-komusubi Fujinishiki known as former Takasago-beya Oyakata,
was a very successful oyakata, "father" of rikishi like
Konishiki, Mitoizumi, Asanowaka, Toki and many others.
|Fujinishiki was the 1049th rikishi to access makuuchi in the whole|
He also became the 298th komusubi in 1960, at Haru Basho.
Up to Hatsu basho 1967, he managed to be komusubi at 10 basho.
At Nagoya 1964, he won a 14-1 yusho as a maegahira 9.
Fantastic performance ! Just think the same year,
Taiho, the big legend, won 4 yusho ...
Fujinishiki has been immortalized into a very famous James Bond 007 movie :
where he played his own role vs. former legend Kotozakura during a fantastic 3 minutes bout !
