WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather, Jr. said he is interested in buying the Los Angeles Clippers and has spoken to his advisers about making a bid to buy the team. 

Mayweather is a regular at Clippers games and said he would stop gambling on sports games if he were to become a co-owner of the team.

He said he had no issues with current owner Donald Sterling during the times they interacted.

"I called Al today about that to see if me, Leonard and Al, and hopefully Richard and a couple of other guys, a couple other of my billionaire guys, we can come together and see what we can come up with," Mayweather said, via ESPN.com. "Hopefully, we can do it, and it's not just talk.

"With me, I can't come in talking about Mayweather only gonna get 3 percent, 4 percent. I got to get a solid percentage. Do we want to buy the Clippers? Yes, we do. We are very, very interested in buying the Clippers. We'll keep the Clippers right where they're at. When I'm not boxing, I'm at the games all the time. We do want to buy the Clippers. Me and my team do want to buy the Clippers and we can afford the Clippers."

Mayweather, 37, (45-0, 26 KOs) has other pressing matters to attend to as he is set to fight Marcos Maidana (35-3, 31 KOs) in a unification fight on Saturday.
