The signature reads Ichiyûsai Kuniteru, There were at least three artists using the name Kuniteru, but this is most probably the one usually known as Kuniteru II (1829-1874). Above is an image of a similar portrait of a sumo wrestler from 1866. Your print is probably from the same period, but the date seal is very blurred and also partly covered by the matting.
