Mariano Ramos, Mexico's beloved retired matador, died yesterday from natural causes in Mexico,.
Always a top draw in his native land, Ramos also made it to Spain in the 1970s. During his presentation in Madrid he cut no ears, but took a vuelta which considering this crowd is reported to be the toughest in the world, would be an astounding success.
Ramos registered many triumphs in the border plazas of Juarez, Tijuana, Mexicali and Nuevo Laredo. Ge was also a regular in Plaza Mexico and Guadalajara as well as other important plazas..
