Inafuku-Lagon, 18 others pace Slasher Cup

THE TANDEM of Hawaiian Howard Inafuku and Thunderbird Sabongnation leader Sonny Lagon garnered four wins apiece for each of their two entries to lead today’s championship of the 2013 World Slasher Cup 8-Cock Invitational Derby.

Only the undefeated entries will compete for the title.

“No one blinks,” says Smart Araneta Coliseum’s pit manager Dong Lamoste, adding that each fight is important because just one loss will kill hopes for a title.

Hosted by the Pintakasi of Champions, the 7-day derby is sponsored by B-Meg, Sagupaan, Thunderbird Romoxtyl and Supremo.
