Cockfighting purse largest in Thai history

Phuket Gazette

 

PHUKET: Two veteran roosters in Samui’s cockfighting ring drew the largest bets in Thailand’s history yesterday.

Cockfighters from Chumporn, Ranong, Surat Thani, Nakhon Si Thammarat and Samui circled around the Baan Lipa Yai ring yesterday afternoon, cheering and placing more than 2 million baht in bets.

The headlining fight, between an eight-month-old gamecock from Chumporn named Hua Pok, and a two-year-old cock from Samui named Sor Kanitsorn, were slated to fight through two twenty-minute periods. Both experienced animals had successfully fought every previous opponent, ratcheting up the blood-thirsty gamblers’ excitement for the primitive 'sport.

You are right! Sorry to tell that the Phuket Gazette article is poor : it should have explained first if the fight and the bets were legal or not. Also we need pictures.

Can someone tell me what a cockfight in Koh Samui has to do with Phuket?

Whenever I read headings like this, I'm reminded of some porn DVD's on the racks in Chinatown.

How does it help to boost Samui tourism as mentioned in the article? It probably brought thirty or forty fighting cocks owners to the island, but that's about it.

Cockfights. Purses. I thought this was going to be about some ladyboys brawling.

I thought the Thai men had world's smallest cocks...:passifier:

they make up by having really large roosters.:smile:

cock fights are a big thing up here and, yes, they frequently get raided and shut down. only to re - emerge at a different location 2 weeks later.
