Report: Jerry Bids $1 Mil. For Boxing Gloves Worn By Ali, Loses To UFC Co-owner

Jerry Jones was reportedly outbid by UFC co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta




    What do you get the man who has everything?

    Well, in Jerry Jones’ case, perhaps a pair of boxing gloves worn by Muhammad Ali.

    Jones reportedly put up a bid of $1 million for a pair of Ali’s gloves at a recent auction, but didn’t win the decades-old mitts--losing out to UFC co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta, who reportedly won the gloves, which were worn by Ali in a 1965 fight with Floyd Patterson, with a bid of $1.1 million.

    The Dallas Cowboys’ owner and general manager has taken a serious interest in boxing of late. Manny Pacquiao has fought at Cowboys Stadium twice now, and Jerry has been outspoken in his interest in trying to draw Pacquiao-Mayweather, if that fight ever happens, to Arlington.
