Borja Jiménez has established himself as an ideal determine in a day filled with depth through which scandal was bordered because of the choice of the president, José Luis González González, to disclaim him the second ear in his first when the complete sq., beginning with the bullfighter herself, was satisfied that the Sevillian's work was worthy of the double trophy, and that Victoriano del Río's bull, Dulce by identify, of nice class and high quality, had gained the honors of returning to the ring. But neither one nor the opposite. The president took out the handkerchief for the primary time, put it away afterwards and endured undaunted the bulk's request from the individuals, who didn’t perceive the explanation that justified his stubbornness. The anger of the general public was monumental, the bull was dragged ingloriously in the midst of the final uproar, the bullfighter's face modified, he circled the ring twice, and Mr. González heard one of many greatest fights within the historical past of the bullfight. sq.. Whatever its cause, the reality is that the field stole the Puerta Grande from Borja Jiménez and the bull's return to the ring.

Certainly, Jiménez's work was thrilling, intense and thorough because the bull left the pigsties. He acquired it on his knees within the center with an extended modified upwind, and, preventing in opposition to the wind that was blowing strongly, he drew aprons, chicuelinas and a closing revolera that excited these current. The bull fortunately got here to the horse and complied with none hesitation; He galloped on banderillas, and arrived on the crutch with the prevailing impression that he would stand out for his high quality. So it was. Jiménez began low and his opponent humiliated her firmly in deception. He then repeated with aggressiveness, promptness and kindness, whereas the bullfighter drew lengthy, relaxed muletazos, overflowing with naturalness and good style. Thus, three rounds with the fitting hand, one accomplished with an beautiful trench and one other with a change of arms pregnant with magnificence. The animal took a slower tempo via the left piton, three pure holes, a trench and a move of disdain ended up upsetting the delirium that from the primary second was skilled within the stands because of the completely happy understanding between bull and bullfighter. There was, lastly, an nearly round pure and a few glorious bass aids that preceded a lunge in a superb place. The animal, embedded within the depths of his the Aristocracy, confronted the dying that was already embracing him, and even twice he was capable of stand up from the sand, after folding his arms. An overwhelming commotion took over the complete sq., which turned white when, lastly, Dulce collapsed eternally. And that's the place it began. It took some time for the president to point out his handkerchief, after which there was confusion, incomprehension and repeated shouts of 'get out of the field'. The fact is that Borja Jiménez's work was vibrant, heat, emotional, and the double prize appeared like there was no approach round it. It was an unmitigated failure of the presidential discount.

The departure of the fifth was introduced, and there Jiménez went once more, – this time with a glance of rage – to the media to obtain the bull on his knees. And after the lengthy change, a fan of extraordinary Veronicas buttoned up with a really bullfighting stocking; and a galleo for chicuelinas closed with an abelmontada stocking. But the bull, which confirmed excellent manners, had no energy and was returned.

And for the third time he headed in the direction of the pigsty door once they introduced the hat's departure. Another very tight lengthy change of knees, a veronica with toes collectively, tight chicuelinas and one other poster stocking. The starting of the muleta process was beautiful: two excessive muleta blows and two very heat trench blows. The bullfighter appeared particularly motivated, and it was no surprise. The the Aristocracy of the bull allowed him to shine with each arms, higher with pure ones, in a process that was declining in opposition to an opponent with little background. Before clicking on the prime, he drew some very private ones helped by the bass and a signature move. The traces turned white once more, to compensate, little question, for the earlier injustice, and the president granted him the ear that opened the Great Gate with all honors.

His two companions have been overshadowed by a lot commotion. Before the nice confusion, Emilio de Justo actually fought with a match and violent bull and in opposition to robust gusts of wind that tarnished his work; a really demanding bull that he didn’t lose face, however he couldn’t obtain the specified look; and he didn’t take a lot under consideration his neat work in entrance of the room, an animal protesting for his poor rag that he gently attacked.

And quite a bit was demanded of Roca Rey, as is commonly the case with those that put on the stripes of determine. He excelled in a courageous takeover for saltilleras within the first Jiménez bull and in one other for gaoneras within the third; He toasted the viewers and stood on his knees in a transparent declaration of excellent intentions, however he didn’t discover the trail to victory between the abruptness of the bull and the protests from the general public. A tame man was the sixth, he tried to muck him firmly, however the bull quickly cracked and the story was over.

The spotlight of the afternoon was that Borja Jiménez got here out on his shoulders for the second time in his profession and established himself as a bullfighting determine regardless of the president's main mistake.
