Humberto Moo was a beloved Mexican matador in the 1950s and 1960s, sating farewell to the bulls in 1970. When active, he was known as The Man With Left Arm Of Gold for his tendency to link many flowing natural passes in his faenas.

Moro also survived one of the worst nonfatal gorings in Mexican history, when he took a nightmarish horn wound in the pueblo of Xico in the summer of 1960. To put it nicely, the horn destroyed his private parts, but the miracle of modern medicine restored him not only to life, but fatherhood.

Moro's son also became a matador.
