Cockfighting in the Philippines is called "Sabong". There are illegal and legal cockfights. Legal cockfights are held on cockpits every week. Illegal cockfights, called "tupada" or "tigbakay", are held in secluded cockpits where the authorities would not be able to operate raids. In both kind of cockfights, knives or "gaffs" are used. There are two kinds of knives used in Philippine cockfighting. The single edge blade (use in derbies) and double edged blades, lengths of knives also vary. All knives are attached on the left leg of the cock. But depending on the agreement between owners, blades can be attached on the right leg, or even on both legs. "Sabong" and illegal "tupada", are judged by a referee called "sentensyador" or "koyme", whose verdict is final and not subject to any appeal.
The Philippines has hosted several "World Slasher Cup" derbies, held twice a year and staged in Araneta Coliseum. The world's leading game fowl breeders gather twice a year during this event.
