Out in front with 4 wins apiece are former World Slasher Champions : Jorge Torres – 2009 (SSR Kaizen GTO); Patrick Antonio - 2007 (Sagupaan B-50) Boy Marzo - 2005 (BM Bulalayaw JDL) and Ludy Lazarte - 1992 (LAF Casablanca).
Shooting for their first Slashers title are equally undefeated Sonny Lagon (TLY Cebuwaii-1 Cobra San Lorenzo), Marvin Rillo (Marvin Aces); Baba Yap (BAY PMan Jerico Bohol) and Mar Gatmaitan (Warrior’s Way).
