CPB and Chris tops World Slasher Cup 1

“The sole champ and the people behind the CPB and Chris entry awarded in the wee hours of the morning at the end of WSC 1”

American Chris Copas of Kentucky, USA and partner CPB group of Mindanao (CPB and Chris entry) topped the “2019 World Slasher Cup 9-Cock Invitational Derby” last Wednesday, Feb. 6 at the iconic Smart Araneta Coliseum.

The CPB and Chris entry, which fielded Kelso, Roundhead and Sweaters sent two years ago in Mindanao, tallied a perfect (9 – 0) card to bag the solo championship.

After piling up eight wins, the CPB and Chris entry was pitted against Jomel Gatlabayan’s warrior in the deciding championship fight, winning convincingly.

Had he lost, Copas is still champion but will share the title two other entries including that of Gatlabayan.

Copas’ buddy Joe Brown, the 2018 Araw Ng Davao champ, said the  best roosters are here in the Philippines and winning the “Olympics of Cockfighting” is everyone’s dream.

Another American, Belle Almojera of Florida and Santi Sierra of Cebu racked up 7.5 points each.

Hosted by Pintakasi of Champions, the successful World Slasher Cup 1 got a valuable support from Pitgames CEO Manny Berbano.

Other sponsors: Thunderbird, Emperador, Powertrac, Pitgames Media Inc. and Sabong Pilipinas. The last winner of the 32” LED TV from Powertrac is Mr. Gavino C. Miguel.

The Birthday Gift 1 and 2 entries of Team Alcala, with eight and seven points respectively, bagged runner-up honors.

Also with seven points: Nene Araneta, Biboy Enriquez, cockfight idol Patrick Antonio, Jomel Gatlabayan and RGBA Friends, Jimmy Junsay, Doc Marvin Rocafort and Cris/Paolo Mercado.
