Cowboys still want big fight
By Calvin Watkins
On his weekly radio show, Jerry Jones said Tuesday the Cowboys are still in the running for the March 13 Manny Pacquiao-Floyd Mayweather welterweight bout.
“We haven’t dropped out of anything,” he said.
The fight could take place in Las Vegas or at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington.
The Grand Rapids Press reported Sunday night that Pacquiao promoter Bob Arum was going to meet with Jones on Thursday in Dallas.
Cowboys’ officials have not yet confirmed that report.
As far as talks go for the bout, Jones said, “Nothing that I can discuss.”
