Al Amezcua, a Guadalajara native, was the initiator of one of the most famous generations of wrestlers in Mexico, as he was the father of the original Septiembre Negro and the legendary Alfonso Dantés, who is the father of César and Apolo Dantés.
He debuted in 1937 losing his first match to Chimal Galán. He went on to don a hood using an English moniker, The Golden Terror. He defended it successfully at least twice, against Rito Romero and Pablo Romero, but went on to lose it against El Santo. This win meant a lot to Santo, as it was his first mask vs. mask match win ever. During his career he also used other names such as Pájaro Azul (Blue Bird) and Bolchevike.
He held two Campeonatos de Occidente (Occident championships); welterweight (1946) and middleweight (1948), the latter of which he eventually lost to Saúl Montes, brother of Bello Greco and uncle of Super Caló and Chris and Alan Stone. He also captured the prestigious Northern Middleweight title from Joe Silva. He lost and regained the title with Jorge Allende, and lost it for good to Pepe Mendieta (father of Rambo).
Amezcua, who also teamed with his son Alfonso when he was starting out, retired in 1964, and died on November 4, 1999 at age 81 in his hometown of Guadalajara.
