He may not be well known in the States but Japan's top Sumo wrestler, Kotomitsuki, has become the first active "ozeki," the champion rank to which he was promoted in 2007, to be fired, Kyodo News reported.

The termination comes as a result of a gambling scandal that has stunned the Japanese sporting world.

He was found to have gambled on professional baseball, with money allegedly a source of funding for mobsters.

63 percent of people responding to a poll suggested that the summer tournament should be postponed, according to the national Asahi Shimbun newspaper.

Sumo is an ancient sport dating back some 1500 years.
