Daniel Ivanov-Aoiyama scored a second consecutive victory at the sumo tournament in the Japanese capital Tokyo.

In a bout of the sixth round the Bulgarian, who has the rank of maegashira-14, overcame maegashira-15 Chiyoshoma by the tsukidashi technique (that uses a single or multiple hand thrusts to force the opponent out of the ring without maintaining any contact with the opponent.)

Aoiyama now has a winning record of 2 wins and 4 losses. In the seventh day of the tournament tomorrow, he will face maegashira-11 Mitakeumi, who has a 4-2 record so far.
