    Former sumo wrestler Wakanoho (Aleksandrovich Gagloev) has admitted that the allegations he made about match rigging were untrue:

    He says he made the whole thing up because a person claiming to be friend of a stablemaster told him that speaking out about match rigging would help his chances of being unbanned by the Japan Sumo Association. It didn’t.

    Wakanoho now says he deeply regrets making false statements and wants to apologize directly to the sumo wrestlers he named when making the accusations.
