Borja Jiménez pays with blood for his triumph with La Palmosilla

Borja Jimenez has paid with blood for his triumph in the first bullfight of the San Fermin Bull Fair. The Sevillian bullfighter arrived in Pamplona thrown out of the main gate in Madrid and was unable to leave through the gate of the bull run, as he had to be urgently transferred to the infirmary in Pamplona Square.

Jimenez He determinedly sought victory with the last of the afternoon of a Very uneven bullfight in La Palmosillaboth in behavior and presentation. There were two interesting bulls with options, but in general the bullfight was jousting of forceswas barely stung on the horse and did not take out the race and interest in the last third.

The catch of Borja Jimenez This happened when he was going in to kill the sixth of the afternoon, after a performance in which he managed to seduce the square with a bull that repeated and put its face in. The excessive acceleration of the bullfighter made the performance gradually lose interest. He failed with the sword at the first attempt and, in the second attempt, he received a blow a strong goring in the thighwhich could be seen perfectly in the bag.

The Pamplona bullring, so accommodating in these cases, has insistently asked for the two ears and the box presided over by Joseba Asirón (EH Bildu) He has conceded it without much sense. The performance did not deserve two ears and the goring, which we hope will be as little as possible, nor does it justify the excessive reward.

It was great Urdiales with the first of the afternoon. He lost the triumph with the sword against an animal from La Palmosilla with motor and class, especially in the last third. The Riojan bullfighter was very serious with the bull, with which he was able to achieve his first trophy in Pamplona, something that would have been more than deserved. He did not find himself with the fourth and was willing with a bull that he killed well, perhaps the best stab of the afternoon.

Fernando Adrian He has arrived very willing to Pamplona with several long passes to receive his first opponent. He tried everything with a classless chestnut that barely humiliated him and did not transmit anything. He also failed with the sword and all his effort was in vain.

He managed to cut an ear in the fifthwith a bull that has gradually grown and from which he has managed to get everything he had. The bull did not transmit and had a strange behavior, with an uneven charge. The debutant was very willing. Fernando Adrián, who had to lead the bullfight and guide the bull.


Six bulls from the La Palmosilla ranch: uneven in presentation and behaviour. The first bull was energetic and fixed, the second was lacklustre, the third had little class, the fourth was uninteresting, the fifth had uneven behaviour, and the sixth was classy.

Diego Urdiales: silence and silence.

Fernando Adrian: silence and ear.

Borja Jimenez silence and two ears.

This is how we reported on the first bullfight of the Pamplona Bull Fair live.
