The Japanese Sumo Wrestling board has been forced to cancel their world tour because it seems that their wrestlers are becoming too fat (loaded down with bent Yen after betting scandals).
Sumo wrestling in Japan is not only a sport, it's religious culture too; fiddling with it and aiming below the belt causes national concern.
It seems that Asian Mafia Syndicates have been offering wrestlers money to do a "bender", drop their strings and fall over like Sonny Liston did all those years ago (Cassius Clay, the Man!).
The authorities got wind (Sumo wrestlers let huge amounts of wind go during fights!) of the scandal and have now decided to cancel a world tour to promote the sport.
It's a shame because they thought they could attract lots of ever-increasing fatties and obese males to the sport from other countries, especially the US.
Now they want to make the sport more "lean and clean" get rid of all of the corruption and over-wieght corrupt wrestlers in the sport.
Huge, unemployed Sumo wrestlers are now being offered jobs as "Bouncers" in disco's all over the world, "Fat chance" of getting in now!
