Floyd Mayweather watches the Los Angeles Clippers with the Philippines flag on his cap
Floyd Mayweather is used to being the center of attention and his choice of headgear during a Los Angeles Clippers game on Sunday caused a stir.
The undefeated American boxer was on the court at Staples Center for the NBA play-off between the Clippers and the Houston Rockets, wearing a cap with the Philippine flag on the front.
Mayweather’s custom made “The Money Team” hat was black with red, white and blue script and the three yellow stars and the sun in the design of the flag of the Philippines. The 38-year-old’s shirt appeared to be made to match the cap as well.

It was the second time in three days that Mayweather has attended a Clippers game after also watching their Game 3 win over the Rockets on Friday.
On this occasion, his dress was a little more sober, but he met actor Mark Wahlberg.
It’s been just over a week since the American defeated Filipino Manny Pacquiao in what was previously billed as the fight of the century at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
There has been a lot of fallout since the May 2 fight with Mayweather suggesting Pacquiao could fight on his undercard in September and the Filipino facing disciplinary action for covering up a shoulder injury suffered before the fight.
Mayweather had the best seat in the house on Sunday to watch a stunning performance from the Clippers as they beat the Rockets 128-95 to take a 3-1 lead in their series.
Maybe having the boxer on the court is good luck for Doc Rivers’ side as they also won Friday’s contest in Los Angeles in the presence of Mayweather.

DeAndre Jordan scored 26 points on Sunday to put the Clippers just a one-berth win in the Western Conference final.
Jordan made 14 of 34 free throws after Houston implemented the controversial willful foul tactic and also had 17 rebounds. Blake Griffin added 21 points, JJ Redick had 18 points and Chris Paul finished with 15 points and 12 assists in the Clippers’ second straight win in the top seven series.
They can advance to the conference final for the first time in their history with a win in Game 5 on Tuesday night in Houston.
