win against Akebono in a Grand Sumo Tournament or Basho? Both were "foreigners" in the sports of sumo but because of their bulk, talent and dedication to the sport, they were promoted to yokozuna for Akebono or the highest title a rikishi or wrestler could obtain while Konishiki was also promoted to ozeki or the second highest rank in sumo. While Akebono was a bit taller, definitely Konishiki was the more interesting guy because of his bulk, personality and "bulldozing techniques". It would be interesting to see a video of the two. Thanks.
