Diego Silveti, the son of the ill-fated matador, David Silveti, continues on the move to the rank fo true fenomeno.
In May, Silveti cut a difficult ear while fighting in a terrific thunder and hail storm in Madrid's Las Ventas, delivering an outstanding faena on dangerous ground. While some purists felt the ear a bit generous, others felt the award well-earned and the torero's performance under such extreme conditions to be way beyond the call. In any case, the performance established Silveti as a definite favorite in Madrid.
In his native Mexico, Silveti has likewise established a series of impressive triumphs and shows no indication of slowing down.
He is clearly in his moment.
