Since it started in 1963 at the Araneta Coliseum, the World Slasher Cup has become the biggest, most prestigious international cock derby that attracts the best breeders and cock fighters from the Philippines and around the world. Known to its participants and aficionados as the “Olympics of Cockfighting,” the World Slasher Cup has elevated cockfighting from being a Filipino pastime and a pre-Spanish heritage into a true gentleman’s sport.
The World Slasher Cup is held twice annually in the mecca of sports and entertainment, the Smart Araneta Coliseum, and is considered by enthusiasts and champions alike as the Holy Grail of cockfighting. Well-known breeders and cockers from the United States, Kuwait, Indonesia, Malaysia, continue to challenge their Philippine counterparts with the toughest bloodlines that vie for championships. The foreign contingent include prominent fixtures in the event, like Hall of Famers Mike Formosa of Hawaii, and Ray Alexander of Texas, among others; as well as local returning champions Patrick Antonio, Ed Apari, and Biboy Enriquez, one of the pioneers of WSC.
