Donut Man of East LA

Carolina Miranda is an arts reporter who wrote a feature on Abel Nabor Campos in the winter edition of Lucky Peach magazine. Her story details how Abel Nabor Campos, hailing from Lagos de Moreno, Mexico, accidentally fell into doughnut-making upon crossing the border with some bakers. Doughnut-making is not his only talent, however, he's also a wrestler and fittingly refers to himself as the donero luchador.
