I don’t think Mayweather would ever leave Vegas, but I also know Jerry Jones when it comes to business means what he says and if he says he would put up a bunch of money for the fight, he would.
Here are the details via Yahoo Sports.
If the fight is made, Jones promised an aggressive bid that would push the benefits of fighting in front of more than 100,000 fans, in a big media market, on the 50-yard line of what has become in just a little more than five years America’s premier sports venue – home to a Super Bowl, a Final Four and the upcoming inaugural college football title game, among other things.
Jones wants the fight at his place and he promised to take on what would be big money bids from casino interests in Las Vegas and perhaps Macau to get it.
“But I don’t want the headlines to say, ‘Jones says he’s got more than Vegas has got if we got into a throw-down,’” Jones told Yahoo Sports before breaking into a laugh. “I don’t want to say it’s impossible, but I don’t want anything like that.
“I do know there is no question that we can have the largest gate in boxing.”
“I feel on sound footing on how to bid it,” he said. “And I know we can give them the best venue. We’re the place to be.”
I still wouldn’t get your hopes up, but one can dream.
