LAS VEGAS (AP) — Throw Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s wallet into the ring as a prospective owner of the Los Angeles Clippers.
Mayweather said Tuesday he’s interested in putting together a group — with himself as a majority owner — to buy the Clippers if the team is put up for sale.
Mayweather says he’s “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.
