One of the bullfighters, Francisco José Espada, had been transferred to a well being heart for a radiological examine on the results of a really sturdy blow to the top, and one other, Isaac Fonseca, was within the infirmary with a goring within the again.

Fonseca had lower off an ear on his first, and with huge gallantry he approached the duty of the sixth, a really critical, astifino, tame and violent bull from Torrestrella, which accomplished the very unequal bullfight of Pedraza de Yeltes.

The Mexican bullfighter supported his injured companion on the earlier bull, and with none proof, summoned his opponent together with his proper hand and withstood the bull's brief and harsh assaults in two rounds. He then cited together with his left hand and drew a number of estimable naturals till he positioned himself to present the chest go, at which level the bull grabbed him from behind, shook him dramatically and threw him to the bottom.

Before the meek of Pedraza, the foot gang confirmed off: Raúl Ruiz within the battle, and Juan Carlos Rey and Jesús Robledo Tito, in flags, and the three saluted the respectable man.

Fonseca completed off his opponent with an awesome thrust, a kind of that in different instances was value an ear; But he had beforehand carried out bullfighting in three intermittent rounds because of the noble animal's lack of greed. Long pure ones, one after the other, going through the entrance and with the toes collectively, however missing the emotion that the connection causes. And the duty had begun on his knees, with well-drawn proper arms and a few rounds on that very same aspect, irregular because of the bull's preliminary violence. In the top, the bullfighter's work was very meritorious, however not excellent.

Francisco José Espadas as soon as once more confirmed on this plaza that he’s a bullfighter of fine style and a creative idea of bullfighting. The solely bull he killed didn’t provide him any probability of victory as a result of he went to the assembly sleepily, with out malice, however with huge disappointment in his eyes.

And Juan Leal killed 4 bulls. He is a courageous and dangerous bullfighter, who exposes quite a bit and feels comfy across the pitons. He started the duty on his knees for the one who opened the spot and when he gave a go modified from behind he was hooked with out penalties. He then muttered, with ease and superficiality, a uninteresting opponent; He stood decorously earlier than the distracted and uninformed fourth, who tripped him in one other go modified from behind, this time standing, and he fell with each knees to the bottom with out additional mishap. And he shortly killed the 2 bulls of his wounded companions.
