JSA announces L.A. exhibition

OSAKA (Kyodo) Sumo wrestlers will travel to Los Angeles in June for an exhibition tour for the first time in 27 years, the Japan Sumo Association said Monday. The two-day event to be held at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena will take place June 7-8, featuring wresters from the top-tier makuuchi division in mini tournaments. The winners from each day will battle it out in a playoff to decide the overall champion. The wrestlers will depart on June 4 and return to Japan six days later. The JSA announced last month that it will hold the first-ever training tour to Mongolia in August.
