The first set of competitors, composed of an estimated 135 foreign and local entries collide against each on Day One at 10 a.m.

The powerhouse homegrown team will parade a line-up of world champions such as reigning 2015 World Slasher Cup-1 victors Blue Bade Farm led by Engr. Sonny Lagon, and Phoenix II comprised of Mario Villamor, Ed Apari and Atty. Art De Castro.

Atty. Denny Salazar, one of the champions from the 2015 World Slasher-2, also guns for a back-to-back title in what is known as the “Olympics of Cockfighting”.

Also participating are 2014 WSC-2 champions Eddie Bong Plaza and Arjay Mea; January 2015 solo champ AOO Hyper B-12 owned by Gerry Ramos and Noel Jarin, who have split entries for this derby; three-time champions Rey Briones, Dicky Lim, and Patrick Antonio; regulars and former champions Nene Araneta, Vergil “Ali” Intino, and Ito Ynares; and a lot more.

The derby’s second edition brings foreign participants from USA, Australia and Indonesia to the Big Dome. American delegates include Slasher contenders Ray Alexander, Damon Yorkman, and Greg Berin, among others.

The 2016 World Slasher Cup-2 8-Cock Invitational Derby continues Friday with the second half of the participants going on a head-on-collision. The 2-cock semi-finals are set on May 28 & 20. On May 30 & 31, those with scores of 2, 2.5 and 3 points will slug it out in the 4-cock pre-finals.

Sponsored by Thunderbird, B-Meg, Perton, Red Bull, with media partners Manila Broadcasting Corporation, the 4-cock grand finals take center stage on June 1 wherein all undefeated entries with scores of 3.5 or 4 points will face off in the championship.
