Jerry Jones tried to spend a million dollars recently, read here.
Jones reportedly put up a bid of $1 million for a pair of Ali’s gloves at a recent auction, but didn’t win the decades-old mitts–losing out to UFC co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta, who reportedly won the gloves, which were worn by Ali in a 1965 fight with Floyd Patterson, with a bid of $1.1 million.
The Dallas Cowboys’ owner and general manager has taken a serious interest in boxing of late. Manny Pacquiao has fought at Cowboys Stadium twice now, and Jerry has been outspoken in his interest in trying to draw Pacquiao-Mayweather, if that fight ever happens, to Arlington.
I thought this guy was having money problems? Spending all that money on an old pair of boxing gloves is silly. Pay me a million dollars I will buy some news gloves and fight a muzzled grizzly bear in a steel cage match.
