Floyd Mayweather Jr. expresses interest in purchasing Clippers
Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s wallet has officially been tossed in the hat of prospective owners of the Los Angeles Clippers.
The boxing champion expressed interest in putting together a group — with himself as majority owner — to buy the Clippers if the NBA team is put up for sale.
“Do we want to buy the Clippers? Yes we do,” Mayweather said. “I’m very, very interested in buying the Clippers.”
Mayweather may not have enough money to buy the Clippers by himself, but he’s certainly got enough for a good down payment. The boxer will make another $40 million or so Saturday night when he takes on Marcos Maidana in the third fight of a six-fight deal with Showtime that is reportedly worth $250 million.
Mayweather has a condo next to the Staples Center and sits courtside pretty regularly at both Lakers and Clippers games. “We want to buy the Clippers and we can afford to buy the Clippers,” Mayweather said.
Would Mayweather make a good owner?
Wouldn’t that be ironic is a black man owned the team?
