He was the first, and so far only, Puerto Rican-born bullfighter (torero) to gain international fame. Toreadora Conchita Cintron was half Puerto Rican.
Pastor was considered by his contemporary colleagues to be talented both with the sword and the cape. On January 16, 1911, he made his public debut, at a plaza in Guadalajara, Mexico. There, he would be revered as one of the best of his era.
Pastor relocated to Spain in 1916, fighting for the first time there on May 16, 1916 in Barcelona. In Spain, he was mentored by José Gómez Ortega. In 1918, Pastor engaged in 38 bullfighting spectacles, and in 1919, he debuted in Madrid.
It was in Madrid on June 11, 1921 that Pastor met with death. On June 11, 1921, during a bullfighting event, his leg was gored by a bull. Bleeding profusely, he managed to ask who turned off the lights? before passing away. The hemorrhage in his leg had caused him to go blind before dying.
