THE LAST TOUR OF A SPANISH BULLFIGHTER NICKNAMED “EL PIRATA” O “EL CICLÓN”

Mexico / As he announced one year in advance, the Spanish bullfighter Juan José Padilla closed his last tour and cut and showed his last ear cut on the seventh run of the Great Season of Mexico, on Sunday 15, bidding farewell to the bullring in one Plaza for him very dear and the one with the highest capacity in the world, the Monumental of Mexico City.

Bullfighting chroniclers write that it wasn’t a lucky goodbye, but very emotional and that Plaza Mexico didn’t see an epic goodbye, although it could be it for the bullfighter for ‘an ugly pitonazo’ by a bull which he received on his knees, but they saw strength, tenacity and push.

‘The cyclone from Jerez’, as it was nicknamed and known in its bullfighting beginnings or ‘the pirate’, after losing an eye for a ‘cornada’ in 2011, received in Mexico the appreciation and affection of the bullfighting fans in which it was his last task and his last face to face with a bull, after more than 23 years of alternative.

In 2011, the cyclone from Jerez (1973), specializing in Miura bullfighting, lost in Zaragoza, the left eye by the horned bull from Ana Romero and, despite this, he recovered and he returned to the bullring leaving for bullfighting lesson of human overcoming.

And that year, 2011, the bullfighter whose career was threatened by that ‘cornada’ that limited his vision, was awarded in Madrid with the VIII “Antonio Welcome to Human Values” Award; and seven years later by the Fundación Concordia y Libertad.

“Every now and then a bull comes out that reminds us of fear and pain. And that’s where we discovered the great bullfighters like Padilla, extraordinary as human beings, who surpass everything because of their physical and spiritual strength, “said Miguel Bienvenida, on behalf of who also left his mark on bullfighting for his human values”.

More than an hour lasted the show on Sunday 15 in Mexico -which Padilla shared with a long tribute to Armillita Chico-, which did not deprive him of “Canta y no llores” or the music of “Las Golondrinas”, a song that he dedicates bullfighters in Plaza Mexico when they say goodbye.
