Turning Stone to host Sumo Wrestling

By ONEIDA NATION

ONEIDA NATION, N.Y. - Two tons of Sumo Champions will collide Saturday, July 19 at Turning Stone Resort Casino’s Event Center for a ground-shaking All-Star Sumo wrestling event.  The first event of its kind at Turning Stone, this larger-than-life tournament will feature ten international sumo champions from seven countries vying for the esteemed All-Star title.

Turning Stone has already established itself as a world-class boxing venue with recent appearances and fight promotions by boxing legends Mike Tyson and Floyd Mayweather, Jr.  But sumo wrestling is not about to let the lean, sculpted guys with gloves devour all the attention.  This one-of-a-kind event will bring to Central New York a level of elite sumo rarely seen outside of Japan.

All-Star Sumo guests will have the opportunity to see up to 45 dynamic matches during this “round-robin” two-hour tournament.  Hosted by Turning Stone and USA Sumo, the competition will feature a lineup of massive competitors with colossal résumés, including multiple World Sumo Champions, multiple Continental Sumo Champions, the heaviest Japanese human in history and the heaviest human to ever run a marathon!

Tickets for All-Star Sumo will be available through Ticketmaster, by visiting the Turning Stone box office or calling (315) 361-7469.  Doors open at the Turning Stone Event Center at 6:30 p.m., Saturday, July 19, with the first match set to begin at 7:30 p.m.
