Cowboys owner Jerry Jones wants potential Mayweather-Pacquiao fight at AT&T Stadium




By Dan Wetzel -   Yahoo Sports



EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Jerry Jones has no inside information. He says he isn’t privy to any discussions, however serious they may or may not be, between the camps of Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather on the possibility of their long-awaited fight occurring in 2015.

Jones, standing inside the Dallas Cowboys’ locker room here late Sunday night, was only certain about two things:

As a boxing fan, he wants the bout made. And as a businessman, he believes a mega-fight like that demands a grand stage on which to shine, and nothing will do the trick like his own AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Sounds logical.

In the middle of the USA. Easier for fans on the extreme ends of the continent to fly in. And the freeway designs are far better to navigate and can handle the traffic vs. Vegas.

Huge stadium.

Not a biased locale (Seems the Nevada athletic commission, boxing judges, court judges, and pretty much everyone else bends over backwards to get floyd whatever he wants).

Would generate a huge live gate along with the unprecedented PPV.

Would be awesome if it happens.
