En la cima de la gloria: Los Últimos Héroes de la Península

LOS ULTIMOS HEROESCierto es que en el transcurrir de la historia existe una época de esplendor que define el rumbo de diversas disciplinas: épocas de oro se dicen llamar. Y así como las hay en el cine, en el fútbol, en la literatura, el boxeo mexicano también contó con la suya  en la década de los setenta.

Jamás en el devenir del boxeo nacional habían surgido en el mismo periodo cinco grandes figuras, todas ellas ex campeonas mundiales: Miguel Canto, Guty Espadas, Freddie Castillo, Lupe Madera y Juan Herrera. Más aún, resulta curioso que estos cinco personajes no sólo compartieron una profesión, un tiempo, sino también su lugar de origen en la ciudad de Mérida, Yucatán.

Y es precisamente este tópico que aborda la opera prima de José Manuel Cravioto: Los Últimos Héroes de la Península; una visión distinta a la trágica y fatal que con frecuencia nos es referida en torno a este deporte. Tras haber sido proyectada en el Festival de Guadalajara 2008 finalmente llega a los complejos de la capital.

Juan Herrera es el hilo conductor de este documental. En un pequeño vehículo recorre las calles de Mérida en busca de sus colegas, con excepción de Lupe Madera fallecido en el 2005 y cuyo testimonio quedó a cargo de su hijo, para narrar uno a uno su historia personal (el ascenso, las proezas y la caída) su percepción y filosofía de vida. Cómo olvidar al bicampeón mundial Miguel Canto mostrando su cuarto de trofeos, testigos del tesón de dicho boxeador; a Guty Espadas con su singular cara de niño y el recuerdo de aquella increíble pelea de trece rounds con el brazo lastimado y cuyo hijo sigue sus pasos, al loco Freddie Castillos y sus ocurrencias, todos ellos forman parte de una serie de personajes que se quedan en nuestra memoria a medida que avanza la cinta, que se vuelven entrañables entre muchas otras cosas,  por aquella humildad que los caracteriza.

Asimismo cuenta con la participación del señor Rivero, entrenador de box y estudioso marxista, quien comparte varias anécdotas y puntos de vista, además de señalar en reiteradas ocasiones que los campeones no son producto de un designio de Dios, sino de la constancia y dedicación, del compromiso de ser los mejores; y la participación de Manolo, un aficionado que abre un salón de la fama en honora los boxeadores ante la indiferencia del gobierno para con ellos.

Con algunos fotogramas dignos de recordarse, quizá una de las debilidades del filme sea los movimientos bruscos de cámara que de vez en vez lo acompañan, además de tornarse un tanto larga.

Los últimos héroes de la península rinde homenaje a esos nombres que en la actualidad se pierden en el olvido, la leyenda de las figuras yucatecas que cimbraban al país cada vez que se anunciaba una pelea,  pero sobre todo es un documental optimista de aquellos que en su momento tuvieron “todo” y que en el ahora, a diferencia de lo que muchos pudieran pensar, viven felices disfrutando la simplicidad de las cosas.
