Athlete was a star of 'Titanes en el Ring'

Humberto Reynoso, a legendary wrestler in the TV program “Titanes en el Ring” (Titans in the Ring), died June 14 of undisclosed causes in San Pedro, Argentina. He was 72.

Reynoso was a star in the program, which aired 1962-72 on Canal 9 after gaining a following at carnivals, circuses and fairs around the country.

Known as “The Red Knight,” Reynoso took the ring in a bright red outfit and red-and-white mask. He kept his identity hidden for over 40 years.

After the program ended, he worked as longshoreman in his native San Pedro, a port city up the river from Buenos Aires.
