“This is the first short knife competition here in Camarines Sur. Using short knife blade means that the gaff only measures one and a half inches long, instead of the long blades that are used in regular derbys,” says Rodney Badong, one of the participants in the said cockfight.
The activity was sponsored by Ernest Seranzana, Delon Neri and Onel Co.
There were 23 entries in the said derby, whose participants were mostly local breeders of fighting cocks in the Bicol Region.
The derby was held at the Camarines Sur Sports Arena (CSSA) at Brgy. San Vicente, here.
