Considering this last master Ramón Abascal was already plenty value and trade to undertake the fight of a steer, encouraged him to dress for the first time of lights in the small square of La Victoria, where she shared the poster with the ill-fated coletudo Tenerife José Mata Garcíaand Fabián Cardeco Linares.
