If I understand your meaning, you are inquiring about the literal "cock pits" that are used for "Fighting Cocks" (roosters). Since cock fighting is not legal in all the civilized areas of the US, I doubt anyone here can be of help to you in that regard, since there is no 'architecture' precedent for such in this country, although it is true that many illegal venues for this do exist in our Southwest (due to the Mexican tradition of immigrants to that area, since it is legal in Mexico). As to 'derby' that term means a type of horse race here, and is the reason for the famous Kentucky Derby held there every May in a large racetrack structure. A web search would no doubt find much about it.

ARENAS for sports and various public gatherings we have in plenty, and there are numerous books on that subject at, so you might try going to that site and typing in the word 'arena' under their BOOKS heading, and no doubt many suitable titles will appear. Likewise, typing that word into the search engine will no doubt turn up much information. Arenas in this country are often referred to as CONVENTION CENTERS or AUDITORIUMS, so you may want to search under those terms also.
