Terence Newman initially eschewed questions today about his sideline spat with secondary coach Dave Campo, which was seen early in Sunday's game against the Redskins as the defense left the field following a series; then, however, he opted to approach the question with a tongue-in-cheek sense of humor.
Newman joked that he and Campo would fight on the undercard of the Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao bout, which is scheduled for next year, and may, if Jerry Jones has his way, come to Cowboys Stadium in Arlington.
"It’s going down,” Newman said. "It’s going to happen in Vegas. It’s going down. We’ve got Don King promoting. You know? Actually, Jerry Jones is taking over. We’re going to have Jerry. I’m kicking Don out. We’ll have Jerry promoting. We might have to move this whole thing to Cowboys Stadium. It’ll be Pacquiao-Mayweather and Campo-Newman. We’re going to make it happen."
Actually, judging by his comments after the 7-6 win on Sunday, Jerry would likely be a willing promoter. Jones said that he enjoyed the show of emotion on the sideline and the fiery nature of Campo. "I loved it," Jones said. "We were pumping our fists, pounding it. I love Dave. I love the energy and excitement."
Campo, for his part, jokingly accepted Newman's terms.
Head coach Wade Phillips previously said that the exchange was not a big deal.
