Tamarah de Leon: A Passion for Cockfighting


She is 19-years old, doesn’t like to read love stories in Wattpad, not addicted to K-Pop music and not even know the British Boy Band – One Direction, she is very different from other modern teenager, you know this lady, Tamarah de Leon?

Unique female personality isn’t it? The uniqueness comes from within her love of cockfighting and she involved in this awesome sport!

Tamarah de Leon loves this sport very much, but there’s no cocker within her family. Actually, her mother is against her new found hobby because cockfighting’s a men-dominated world and not suited for a girl like her.

Luckily, her ex-boyfriend is a die-hard cocker which gave her way to fully love the sport. She accompanied him to the cockpit and found the greatness and enjoyed it with vigor. Cockfighting consumed her time with hubby and breeding cocks!

She also discovered that cockfighting gave way to interact with different people from all levels in the Philippine society. She found the comfort in the cockpit and didn’t experience any discrimination whatsoever.

Tamarah truly believed that cockers are very gentlemen and friendly as well because they welcome female members to join the ranks. As a matter of fact, ladies already made a record in cockfighting scene here in the Philippines like Osang Dela Cruz and Robie Yu Panis. She has also a dream to be a lady gaffer like Ms. Robie that’s why she wants to learn how to do it.

She experienced how to bet in a derby and how to released fighter cock on a cockpit arena. She really enjoys the sport and loves it through her character. Visiting the farms with friends was consummated when she has time, most likely, farms in Luzon.

She idolized the father and son tandem of Carol and Chris Nesmith of Blackwater Farm because of the consistency of their bloodlines in breeding fighter chickens. And, love the White Kelso because of the clean looks from inside and outside appearance because it represents her beauty and stature; a 5’6” in height, white skin, lovable and former model. Right now, she is a first year college student, taking up engineering course and cockfighting doesn’t affect her studies. She knows how to use her priority in life and graduating from college bounds her ambition. All she wants is to enjoy cockfighting for this is her passion ever since she fell in love with cockfighting.
