This question that i would like to ask ,is probably best for Ike i think he is is the most knowledgeble in the Dora Diza sport.The question is how would you conpare a American tape bird or a thai tape bird against A Dora Diza bird,in a contest against each other,in both senerials,in a Americans tape contest or in a Dora Diza contest.
Abreu my response to your query is purely hypothetical since a competition of this type has never happened. The sport of tape fight in the Indian subcontinent that includes present day India, Pakistan & Bangladeshhas been practiced for hundreds of years and the knowledge of breeding, raising, selecting , conditioning and finally pitting on the big day has been passed on from generations. Thus the breed of these aseels has been ascertained and tested for a very long time. Now compare this to the tape boxing fowls of US, my position is that the tape boxiing breed of USA is relatively speaking not more than 50 to 60 years, it really peaked when the Vietnam war concluded in 1974 when a lot of Vietnamese, Laotians and Cambodians immigrated to USA in large numbers. Importation of Ganoi, Thais, Burmese and Brazilian GameFowls began. Just like all imported Aseels to USA few were proven to be of high quality the same was also true of Ganoi, Thai's, Burmese and Brazilian's. Some breeders in USA were able to put the MAGIC combination of hybrid vigor by selectively breeding the gamest Ganoi, Thais Burmese and Brazilian's. But even you will agree that this hybrid breed of USA is not settled yet. That is one of the main reason why breeders of tape birds in USA have to breed them in such large numbers select the BEST for competition and either consume or get rid of the rest. Fortunately the QUALITY breeders of Aseel from the Indian subcontinent can still be very competitive breeding very few Aseels from very selected brood stock. In my many conversations with a well known Aseel breeder from the West Coast of USA his position regarding Aseels is as follows "Only 10% of Aseels on a breeders yard is 100% Aseel!". An average Quality Aseel breeder in the Indian subcontinent has no more than 20 to 25 Aseels in his yard and that in my opinion is too many so given the 10% analogy only 3 or 4 aseels on the yard qualify as the Best of the Best. Now compare this to the Breeders in USA with an average collection of 100+ birds of hybrid composition. I will answer your question of who will prevail in an American Tape contest or the Dora Dirza contest if YOU answer who will prevail in the Postizza competion derby held in Cuba between Spanish birds from USA and Cuban Spanish birds which have been selectively bred on the Island of Cuba for hundreds of years. Your inquiry is not easy to answer but my question to you is equally tough. Think about it.
Yes my friend Ike i have to agree with you not easy question to answer,but if i was force to bet on the outcome ,of american cuban bred birds against pure cuban birds .I would have to bet on the American cuban birds, just simpley they are more of a perfect hibrid for the task at hand.The same goes for the puerto rican spanish,very well made hybrid.
