Floyd Mayweather Rumors
Floyd Mayweather didn’t deny the possibility of seeking ownership for a potential team in either Las Vegas or Seattle as well as an existing team. “It could be the Vegas franchise. It could be the Seattle franchise or I could be buying a franchise that’s already up and running,” said Mayweather. “So the first offer, we offered them a little over $2 billion for majority ownership. Do I have it? Absolutely, I have it, but it didn’t happen overnight. It didn’t happen overnight. It’s a lot when you have so many different businesses all around the world. It’s a lot.”
Mayweather indicated that he and his business partners continue to pursue the purchase of an NBA team. Mayweather didn’t indicate which franchise was in his sights but indicated that the pursuit has been in the works for an extended period. “I’ve been working on buying a NBA team outright,” said Mayweather. “One of my other business partners, Brent Johnson, he’s here. So we’ve been working on the NBA team for a while now. It’s kinda, it’s rough.”

Floyd Mayweather Jr. could have help from a longtime rival in his quest to own an NBA team. In an interview with FightHype.com, former boxing champion-turned-promoter Oscar De La Hoya suggested he’d be open to working with Mayweather on bringing an NBA franchise to Las Vegas.
“Maybe there’s something for us to do in Vegas together, some kind of business,” De La Hoya said. “I hear that the NBA may possibly go into town, and so maybe we can join up and become a powerhouse there and help bring the team to the home that we built. We built Las Vegas – literally.”
