Sabong is an entertaining tradition that is practiced almost everywhere in the world, taking advantage of the fact that birds in the shape of chickens (and also other birds) are aggressive during the rutting season. Sabong is a game prevalent in ancient China. It was first developed by the Dai people of the Baiyue. In Asia, the Indus civilization already had Sabong (they used the original chicken).
They are found in China, the Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand, Andhra Pradesh, India, and Tamil Nadu in Asia, Ecuador, Nicaragua, Colombia, Venezuela, Panama, Mexico, Peru, Dominica, Louisiana in the Americas, and in France and Spain in Europe.
When two fierce roosters are put together in a cockfight, they will peck and bite each other fiercely and hit each other with a distance. If two chickens have been fighting each other for a long time and they are tired, they will be sprayed with water to wake them up, so that they will be revitalized and put back into the fight until one of the roosters is defeated. The chicken fight scene is quite intense, the two chickens fought indistinguishable, incompatible, after the fight, the crown bleeding, cries feeble.
