In the Philippines, cockfighting is a very popular sport that has been around for many centuries. "Sabong", as it is locally known in the Philippines, is one of the Filipinos' favorite pastimes. Every year, between 7 and 13 million fights are organized. The spectators are overwhelmingly male. It has been passed as a legal sport by President Marcos in 1974. This practice is considered as an important part of the cultural tradition of the country. It has lasted throughout the years, in spite of the fact that many countries have made it illegal.
