Jerry Jones offers $25 million for Pacquiao-Mayweather

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has offered $25 million to host the March 13 fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao. From AOL Fanhouse:

"I agree with that statement," said Top Rank CEO Bob Arum, when informed that Golden Boy Promotions' Richard Schaefer told The Los Angeles Times "The numbers are going in the right direction and I believe we'll end up in excess of $30 million."

"I just agree," Arum reiterated. "We will end up with a guarantee that starts with a three."

This is a massive offer. The $20 million from Los Angeles' Staples Center was big, and this ups it. This thing is going to end up with a $30 million-plus site fee from whoever lands the fight. I still think it's likely that the MGM Grand in Las Vegas will outbid everyone, but Jones is making it interesting.

No matter where this fight ends up, it's going to be massive. That's a given. But this offer might change the game a little bit. If Jones is prepared to go even higher, who knows what the site fee could wind up being?
