We interrupt your Cowboys-in-December hand-wringing to bring you a rather interesting bit of news as it pertains to Cowboys Stadium. It seems the two best boxers on the planet – Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquaio – are inching closer to finally getting in the ring together. If they do, it would likely be the richest pay-per-view bout in the history of boxing. And it all might go down at the shiny new Cowboys Stadium. To London’s Daily Mirror we go:
Floyd Mayweather Junior's superfight with Manny Pacquiao is close to being sealed.
A source close to the negotiations claims that world pound-for-pound king Mayweather is edging nearer to agreeing terms.
The date of March 13 has already been pencilled into the fight diary and the Las Vegas casinos, New Orleans and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones are falling over themselves to stage the showdown which will be the richest fight in history…
The fight to stage the contest is already raging and Jones wants to put it on at his new home for the Cowboys in Arlington, Texas.
Of course the Double J wants it in his stadium. THE BIGGEST FIGHT IN ALL THE WORLD DESERVES TO BE HELD IN THE BIGGEST STADIUM IN ALL THE WORLD NYEEEEHAWWWWWW!!!
Promoter Bob Arum would prefer the fight took place in Las Vegas, but I’m sure Jerry Jones has the funds to entice Arum to reconsider. So look out this March. The biggest fight in the universe could be coming to JerryWorld. No cage dancers required.
