Padilla and Iván Fandiño – Success in the Bullfight of July 13
The fourth largest bullring in the world – Pamplona´s Monumental – was full to the brim yesterday on the next to the last fight of Sanfermines. Fans were excited and anxious to see the matadors,Padilla, Ivan Fandiño and Perera face bulls from the ranch of Fuente Ymbro.
Fandiño is the first matador to cut two ears from the same bull in the Fair of 2013. Padilla cut an ear from each one of his bulls. The public of Pamplona adore this bullfighter and have no problem in showing it. Their petitions to the presidency to award Padilla a second ear from both bulls were denied. Padilla faced two bulls of very different quality, the first disinterested, and the second one, a brave bull. In any case Padilla was able to demonstrate his art.
The first bull of Fandiño was the best of the afternoon. A perfect sword thrust, awarded with two ears. The second bull, did not enable the matador to repeat his first performance.
Perera probably wishes that he hadn´t shown up. His bulls were complicated to handle, and his turns in the ring were received with silence.
Padilla and Fandiño were carried out of the “Great Door” on the shoulders of their fans.
