If banned Clippers owner Donald Sterling is forced to sell the team, finding a buyer shouldn't be too difficult. In fact, boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. says he wants it.

The fighter and Clippers fan says he and his group of investors are "very, very interested" in buying the team. Mayweather says "Me and my team want to buy the Clippers. And we can afford the Clippers." His "team" reportedly includes Diddy, Rick Ross and other minority stake team investors.
As for the Clippers' current embattled owner Sterling, Mayweather says he has no problem with him. He says, "I don't have nothing negative to say about the guy. He's always treated me with the utmost respect, he has always invited me to games, always. And he always says, 'Floyd, I want you to sit right next to me and my wife.'"
