Manuel Antonio Diaz holds the gamecock that he is putting up to fight while it's spurs are filed down in order to be replaced by plastic ones. Diaz said he officially puts his birds up for a $200 wager, which is kept in a sealed envelope by a judge during the fight. Informal wagering on top of that can drive numbers much higher. The most he ever bet on one fight was nearly $50K he said.
