LAS VEGAS (AP) - Promoters of the Manny Pacquiao-Floyd Mayweather Jr. fight abruptly canceled a trip to Dallas on Wednesday, dealing a blow to the chances of Jerry Jones landing the bout for Cowboys Stadium.

The trip was canceled at the last minute because Mayweather's promoter apparently decided he didn't want the fight at the new stadium. The move leaves the MGM Grand hotel arena in Las Vegas as the heavy favorite to host the March 13 fight.

Co-promoter Bob Arum - who got the news at his 78th birthday party Tuesday night - said he was embarrassed by the trip being canceled because Jones had rearranged his schedule so he could give the promoters a tour of the $1.2 billion stadium and present a proposal to host the bout.
