Cockfighting enthusiasts out to test the mettle of their fiercest breeds against the toughest competitors are taking a chance at the rueda when the 2018 World Slasher Cup 2 returns to the historic Smart Araneta Coliseum from May 6 to 12, 2018.

With the promise of intense battles among top breeds from all over the world, all eyes will be on World Slasher Cup 2, the second edition year of the most prestigious and much-awaited cockfighting derby in the country this year. To make it easier for regular participants, returning champions, and raring newbies to get in on the action, the WSC Derby Office has introduced an easy, hassle-free online registration system via its official website, www.worldslashercup.ph.

Those interested can simply visit the website, click the REGISTER ENTRY button, and fill up the required details. After submission online, the WSC Derby Office will get in touch with the registrant to verify information and later inform them if the registration is confirmed. Other details such as reservation of cockhouses and entry fee payments can also be discussed upon entry confirmation.

Touted as the “Olympics of Cockfighting,” WSC has always attracted the top breeders and their finest winged-warriors coming from the US, Kuwait, Indonesia, Malaysia, Taiwan, and the Philippines. In the first edition this year, a sole champ emerged from hundreds of fierce entries.

Rep. Patrick Antonio earned his seventh WSC title, which makes him one of the most admired personalities of the sport. Lauding the WSC organizers for fair fights and clean competition, he said these were reasons why he keeps competing at the WSC, which honors sabong as a tradition and a true “gentleman’s sport.”

The World Slasher Cup 2 dates are as follows: 2-cock Eliminations from May 6 to 7; 3-cock Semis on May 8 and 9; and 4-cock Pre-Finals and 4-cock Finals on May 11 and 12, respectively. WSC 2 will have a one-day break on May 10.
