Slasher Cup finals on

The three–day finals of the “2017 World Slasher Cup 2 Invitational 9-Cock Derby” starts today at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Considered as the Olympics of cockfighting, the World Slasher Cup which began in 1988 has been attracting sabong fans in droves since it opened last Thursday.

“For the last four days, I met many cockers who are familiar faces in provincial cockpits. Foreigners and OFWs are also present,” said WSC media partner Manny Berbano of Pitgames.

The WSC’s main backers are Excellence Poultry and Livestock Specialists, a Filipino-owned company, together with Pitgames Media, Petron and Thunderbird.

More than 40 qualifiers out of 100 with 2, 2.5, 3 and 3.5 points clash in today’s 4–cock finals. The final round continues tomorrow and on Wednesday (for those with 4, 4.5 and 5 points).

The frontrunners with 5-0 win-loss card so far are: Tonton Lim (Lucban), Rep. Patrick Antonio (Sagupaan T2S 500), Aurelio Yee and John Gutierrez (Casa Juan Resort) and Rep. Khulit Alcala (VJA Khulit CC Combine 2).
