De La Hoya, Mayweather Interested in Purchasing Clippers Together

De La Hoya, Mayweather Interested in Purchasing Clippers Together

Magic Johnson may be the frontrunner to purchase the Clippers if the NBA owners force owner Donald Sterling to sell the team after he was banned from the league for life on Tuesday, but former boxing rivals Oscar De La Hoya and Floyd Mayweather also expressed interest in buying the Clippers together.

“When it comes to business, what better than two minorities? The commissioner wanted to see more minority ownership in the NBA,” De La Hoya said. “If he wants more minorities involved in the NBA, what better than me and Floyd to be part of a potential ownership group?”

As USA Today noted, De La Hoya already owns a substantial part of the Houston Dynamo Major League Soccer franchise and has a majority stake in Golden Boy productions.  

“It would be a perfect trifecta to be involved with the Clippers,” he said. “I love sports, and soccer, boxing and basketball are my three passions.”

In 2007, Mayweather defeated De La Hoya by split decision in what was then the most lucrative fight in history.
