SABONG CHALLENGE is a cockfighting event where 'Meron' or the favored one will be up to accept challenges from any challenger that will challenge the prize cock to a fight with high amount of wager on the line. The Wala corners could challenge them with a smaller center bet laid.HISTORY OF COCKFIGHTING IN THE PHILIPPINESA cockfight is a blood sport between two roosters (cocks), or more accurately gamecocks, held in a ring called a cockpit. The first documented use of the word gamecock, denoting use of the cock as to a “game”, a sport, pastime or entertainment, was recorded in 1646, after the term “cock of the game” used by George Wilson, in the earliest known book on the sport of cockfighting in The Commendation of Cocks and Cock Fighting in 1607. But it was during Magellan's voyage of discovery of the Philippines in 1521 when modern cockfighting was first witnessed and documented by Antonio Pigafetta, Magellan's chronicler, in the kingdom of Taytay. Cockfighting is a blood sport due in some part to the physical trauma the cocks inflict on each other, which is sometimes increased for entertainment purposes by attaching metal spurs to the cocks' natural spurs. While not all fights are to the death, the cocks may endure significant physical trauma. In some areas around the world, cockfighting is still practiced as a mainstream event; in some countries it is regulated by law, or forbidden outright. Advocates of the "age old sport" often list cultural and religious relevance as reasons for perpetuation of cockfighting as a sport. The country has had a rich history in sabong way before the colonizers arrived in the country, and had transcended time. DERBY MATCH (Tournament Fight)DERBY is the term used to refer to a cockfighting event organized by the federation or a promoter where the participants agree to fight a given number of cocks matched according to uniformity or proximity in weights upon the result of which a pool of money (pot) is disposed and paid by the federation/promoter to the winners.
