takeru kobayashi wing record Eating champ downs 337 wings, Takeru Kobayashi, a six-time hot dog eating champion  now has a new title under his belt. Kobayashi, 33, ate a record 337 chicken wingsat Philadelphia's annual wing-eating contest  He beat out the reigning three-time champion  and got to take home the cash prize



In a landslide victory at SportsRadio 94 WIP's Wing Bowl XX, Takeru Kobayashi dethroned reigning champ Joey "Super" Squibb, by downing a record 337 wings.

Kobayashi shattered the previous high of 254 wings, set last year by Squibb.

As expected, it was a Kobayashi/Squibb final, but the wing-off was a formality as Kobayashi had a commanding lead of over 60 wings by the end of the second round.

"He was great," said Squibb after watching someone else be crowned Wing Bowl champion for the first time in three years. Great may have been an understatement, as Kobayashi has obliterated the previous overall record before the second round even ended. Squibb's disappointment is most likely tempered because he had just won a 2012 Chevy Camaro for being the local eater that ate the most wings.

Boos rained down from the top of the Wells Fargo Center as Kobayashi flexed his muscles after his coronation.
Competitive-eating champ Takeru Kobayashi conquered Philadelphia's annual gustatory gorge-fest by eating 337 chicken wings in a half-hour before a crowd of nearly 20,000 at Wing Bowl XX.

The Japanese phenom demolished the record of 255 set last year by Jonathan "Super" Squibb.

The extravaganza drew thousands of beer-fuelled fans to the Wells Fargo Centre before sunrise to watch competitors stuff themselves with chicken wings.

Kobayashi claimed a US$20,000 (NZ$23,922) cash prize for his victory. It was the six-time Nathan's Hot Dog eating contest champ's first time competing at Wing Bowl, though he consumed a cheesesteak in 24 seconds as part of an eating exhibition last year.

Squibb had been trying to win his fourth consecutive Wing Bowl crown, but the Berlin, New Jersey, man finished a distant second with 271 wings.
