Lupita Lopez

Golden Pluma Award winner
Blanca Guadalupe López Maldonado was born in Tahmek, Yucatán. Along with her brother Carlos Lopez they are the fourth generation of bullfighters in their paternal family.

Daughter of Carlos López Herrera “El Cid” and Nelia Maldonad. At a young age at family parties and gatherings, Lupita would play being the bull while her brother who had begun bullfighting would show his matador capabilities.

She has fought in all the major arenas of Mexico. In Monterrey she won the Golden Pluma award and has also obtained trophies in Ciudad Del Carmen, Motul, Nuevo Laredo, Pachuca, Texcoco and Tlaxcala.

Lupita wants to go to Denver to demonstrate her art of bullfighting, her courage but above all her “hunger for triumph and desire to be an example for all those women who perform in activities cataloged absurdly as “of men.”
