Luchador - Anibal

Carlos Ignacio Carrillo Contreras was born on November 5, 1940 in either Topilejo, Zitácuaro or Laureles Michoacán, Mexico. There's some conflict about his birthplace.
Carlos is better known in Lucha Libre as Anibal.
Anibal was trained by Chico Fernández and Salvador Flores and made his pro wrestling debut on November 1963 in Topilejo, Michoacán.
It wasn't until 1991 that Anibal finally lost his mask to Máscara Año 2000 on December 13, 1991 at the Arena México in Mexico City.
3 years later Anibal passed away on March 9, 1994 at age 53.
During his career, Anibal held several titles including the Distrito Federal Light Heavyweight Wrestling Title, the NWA World Middleweight Title Wrestling twice, the National Middleweight Wrestling Title, UWA World Middleweight Wrestling Title, UWA World Junior Light Heavyweight Wrestling Title twice, the WWC World Junior Heavyweight Wrestling Title in Puerto Rico and the European Middleweight Wrestling Title in Panama.
There is an El Hijo de Aníbal that wrestles in Lucha Libre, but it's not known if this is the actual son of Anibal or not.
Anibal wrestled for EMLL (Empresa Mexicana de Lucha Libre) the promotion that later changed it's name to CMLL.
