The Sweater Gamefowl and its Fighting Style

The Sweater is synonymous with the king of the gamefowl and is an absolute winner. We cannot talk about cockfighting without mentioning the Sweater.

Developed by Carol Nesmith, Sweater has consistently won the majority of derby fights in hard competition over the years in the bloodiest cockpits in the Philippines and Mexico. Sweater became the winningest bloodline of fighting cock not only in the Philippines but also in South America, particularly in Mexico.


Although Carol is not the original breeder of the famous bloodline, he is instrumental in its popularity and the one who refined its bloodline so he deserves all credits for the Sweater development. The person who sold him the original stock even told him that the bred could no longer compete. Carol’s partnership with one of the Philippines’ best, Rafael “Nene” Abello, paid off and the bloodline became not only famous but the leader in cockfighting.

The Sweater is truly a winning bloodline that pounds its opponent into either submission or retreat. They are known for their fast and relentless attacks in both air and ground until their opponent could no longer fight back.

Early bloodlines of Sweaters are known for the lack of endurance but continued development by infusions of other bloodlines made the current Sweaters complete fighting machines, becoming one of the most feared bloodlines inside the cockpit today.

Sweaters are fast and high flyers that could attack the opponent in multiple ways. On the ground, there are more dangerous.

The best-known Sweater bloodline is the Possum Sweater 226 developed by Nene Abello in Bacolod City and is known to win multiple World Slasher championships.
