Jerruh Jones Wants to Watch a Fight

Jerry Jones seen here in front of his palace.

This is epic. Write this down. This may be the only time in my life that Jerry Jones and I agree on something.

The Dallas Cowboys owner, and world’s largest ATM, has offered fight promoters $25 million to host the Manny ‘Pac Man’ Pacquiao vs. Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather super-duper-fight at the new Cowboys Stadium in March 2010.

(The date of this fight is crucial. If the fight were to be held at the home of the Dallas Cowboys in December the promoters were concerned that the fight would have no winner.)

Jones is willing to lower the mammoth punter’s targets video screens (Which would cost a pretty penny.) and install 9,000 temporary seats around the ring. He would then try to fill the stadium to its normal capacity of 110,000 people. That’s almost 120,000 people in one freaking stadium to watch a boxing match.

If this were to be agreed upon by the promoters this would be amazing, not only for boxing, but for sports as a whole. The venue would turn an already mega-event into an astronomical uber-event.

I can’t wait to see if the promoters will go ahead with the deal, and for the sake of the sports fan, I hope they do.


(Side note: Holding the fight at Cowboys Stadium would be awesome for this possible side effect: Jerry Jones being taken to his ringside seat in a ceremony inspired by Apollo Creed’s ‘ode to America’ from Rocky I. Stop pretending like he wouldn’t do it. You’re just lying to me and yourself.)

    Get your facts straight Moonshine! Its Rocky IX, not I, that Apollo does his mega American tribute… Then he gets knocked the $#@& out by Coach Tap!

    While you’re not totally incorrect (Creed did have an Americana themed entrance to his fight vs. Drago), his entrance in Rocky I was much more lavish.

    This was due to Creed fighting Balboa on New Year’s Day in 1976, the year of the United States Bicentennial in Philadelphia.

    Creed ‘crossed the Delaware’ in a cardboard boat held up by his hype men while dressed as Uncle Sam.
