There were rumors of the Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao fight happening in Cowboys Stadium... but according to Bob Arum, it's not happening.

"Richard [Schaefer, CEO of Golden Boy] called me last night and said he won't go to Texas. And I told him to call Ross and tell him. And then I called Ross and said, 'You don't want me to go if he's not going. If Jerry Jones offers me money for the fight what is Pacquiao going to do? Go in the ring alone?' Schaefer just said, 'I'm not going to Texas. I'm not going to the do the fight in Texas. I'm not going to waste my time.' That's the explanation."

Well... that pretty much sums it up.
