Further information: 

Morante de la Puebla, (the bullring name of Jose Antonio Morante Camacho) is a Spanish matador.

He was in the spotlight for the first time in Villamanrique de la Condesa, Sevilla) on September 3, 1988.

His debut in Madrid took place on April 23, 1995 with a Pasquau Jimenez bull.  In Seville he debuted on April 10, 1996. In 1996 he won the Arnedo Zapato de Oro (Golden Shoe) award.

He took the alternativa on June 29, 1997 in Burgos. His sponsor was Cesar Rincon, and his witness was Fernando Cepeda. The bulls were from Juan Pedro Domecq’s ranch, and his special choice of bull was “Guerrero” (Warrior).  He earned an ear for each of his bulls.

Considered an artist for his depth, purity and classicism, Morante has styled himself as an impulsive and instinctive matador. He fights in harmony with the demands of his body and mood. As all artists, he is not celebrated for his consistency, and his roughness is as common as his brilliance. Today, he is considered not only one of the great masters of the cape, but perhaps the best.

A famous breeder once said that one of Morante de la Puebla’s muleta passes is worth more than the entire bullfight of any other matador. He obtains a lot of media coverage, and as a good artist is always trying to express his inner life through his numerous interviews and appearances at cultural events.
