WATCH: Tuf Cooper Gives His Thoughts on Competing in the Cinch Roping Fiesta
SAN ANGELO, TX – Four time world champion Tuf Cooper is taking the open spot for this year's Cinch Roping Fiesta and he is excited about it.
"Everybody in the calf roping world knows how big the Roping Fiesta is for us," said Cooper in the video. "I remember being a kid watching Fred Whitfield and Cody Ohl match rope there so it'll be very awesome that I get the chance."
Cooper is a four time world champion, a 12 time National Finals Rodeo qualifier since joining the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association. Cooper has won the Cinch Roping Fiesta in the past and is ready to get another.
His opponent will be the current world champion Haven Meged. In his first professional win he made it to the NFR and won the tie-down roping. Meged also made it to the Canadian NFR and earned reserve champion.
The Cinch Roping Fiesta is scheduled for Oct. 23-25. To purchase tickets follow the link here.
