Pacquaio promoter finds heaven on Cowboys 50 yard line

Some people may think that Joshua Clottey doesn’t have a prayer against Manny Pacquiao on March 13 at Cowboys Stadium.

But one Top Rank Promotions employee has already had his prayer, on the 50 yard line no less with team owner Jerry Jones looking on in appreciation, no less.

Carl Moretti, veteran boxing man and a VP for New York Football Giants devotee Bob Arum’s outfit which promotes both the Filipino and the Ghanaian, counts golf as a pastime when not conducting boxing business.

But the New Jersey resident’s real sporting passions, other than his family and away from the prize ring, are following the Yankees in baseball, Notre Dame in college football and the storied Dallas franchise in the National Football League.

Needless to say, when Moretti’s Cowboy fanhood was revealed, he and Jones hit it off.

“It was great,” Moretti said. “I met Jerry through Bob and told him how I loved his team. He not only brought me to their locker room, I went out to the 50 yard line and knelt in thankful prayer. To top it all off, Jerry let wear one of his Super Bowl rings for a photo.

“Let me tell you, I was in football heaven.”

Now if Moretti and the Charley Weis head coaching replacement can only square things away with the troubled program in South Bend. It may take a lot of Touchdown Jesus prayers for that to happen.

Tickets for Clottey-Pacquiao, with Manny’s WBO welterweight title on the line, go on sale this Saturday at reasonable prices.
