I can find no lifetime statistics but I did find some other information that gives you a bit of an idea of how popular and in demand he was in his hay day.

In 1965 he fought in 111 corridas, breaking the single-season record of 109 established by Juan Belmonte in 1919. In August 1965 he killed 64 bulls (a record for one month) and is believed to have been paid 35,000,000 pesetas (about $600,000).

In each corrida (bullfight) a matador usually kills 2 bulls. So, in 1965 he killed at least 222 bulls. He was active as a matador for about 4 decades so one can get an estimate of how many bulls he killed during that time. He retired in 2002.

How many people have died from a toreador?

This is a difficult question to answer with any degree of accuracy as there is no definitive source of information regarding how many people have died as a result of a toreador. However there have been some documented cases of fatalities that have occurred as a result of a toreadors bullfighting activities. Here are some of the most notable examples: In 1881 Spanish bullfighter Rafael Molina Jimenez was killed by a bull during a bullfighting event in Madrid. In 1892 Juan Belmonte one of the most famous toreadors of all time suffered a fatal injury after he was gored by a bull during a bullfight in Seville. In 1904 Spanish bullfighter Jose Gomez Alvarez was killed by a bull during a bullfighting event in Valencia. In 1924 Spanish bullfighter Jose Sancho Casanova was killed by a bull during a bullfighting event in Madrid. In 1934 Spanish bullfighter Antonio Fuentes was killed by a bull during a bullfighting event in Madrid. In 1938 Spanish bullfighter Antonio Baena was killed by a bull during a bullfighting event in Seville. In 1940 Spanish bullfighter Manuel Cuadrado was killed by a bull during a bullfighting event in Madrid. In 1944 Spanish bullfighter Jose Maria Rueda was killed by a bull during a bullfighting event in Madrid. In 1949 Spanish bullfighter Francisco Montes was killed by a bull during a bullfighting event in Madrid. In 2011 Spanish bullfighter Victor Barrio was killed by a bull during a bullfighting event in Teruel.While these are some of the most widely reported cases of fatalities caused by toreadors there may be other cases that have gone unreported or underreported. Therefore it is difficult to accurately determine the exact number of people who have died as a result of a toreadors activities.


Who are some famous bull riders?

Everyone has their own opinion. There is a great difference between 'Who is the best bullfighter?' and 'Who was the most popular bullfighter?' Sometimes it is the same person, sometimes not. For best bullfighter ever, many people would choose Juan Belmonte or Manolete. For most popular bullfighter El Cordobes might be the choice. He was not a particularly good or artistic fighter but became quite popular a few decades back because of his reckless attitude and daring in the bullring. Belmonte and Manolete have been long dead and El Cordobes has been retired now for a number of years.
