Bullfight World...

Lyn Sherwood Reviews 1999 Corridas and Previews Year 2000

With only a 50/50 chance that El Juli will perform in a post-season November corrida, there will be no more bullfights in 1999, in Tijuana. But, according to a reliable source, aficionados will see some big changes in the summer of 2000.



Domingo Lopez Chavez had to fine afternoons, receiving an indulto and one ear in his debut, and one ear and a serious cornada in his second performance.

There will be only eight corridas —four in the downtown ring and four at the sea— in the next years' season. The reason, in this observer's opinion, was the decision by the empresarios to target all of their advertising and promotion exclusively at the Tijuana audience, ignoring the aficionados from north of the border. The trouble is that most of the Tijuana crowd cannot economically support a 13-corrida season. Thus, they are very selective in attending only those Sundays that featured particularly attractive cards.
