Peter O'Malley, the longtime owner of the franchise, thinks the McCourts should put the team up for sale.

And now, Oscar De La Hoya would be interested -- if the Dodgers were for sale -- in buying the franchise.

"Interested? Are you kidding me? It would be an honor to somehow be involved with the Dodgers," De La Hoya told 710 ESPN in Los Angeles. "We are born, raised and live here in L.A. We are very, very interested. We would be on top of it. Hopefully something will come out of it. "

De La Hoya, a native of Los Angeles, earned a gold medal as an amateur in the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona, Spain. As a professional he amassed a record of 39-6 and won 17 world titles in six weight divisions. He is the founder of Golden Boy Promotions.

"First off, " De La Hoya continued about the Dodgers. "Obviously, there are a lot of problems and issues that have to be resolved. But we're right here waiting and willing."

He added: "We haven't even thought about putting a group of investors together. But it wouldn't be difficult at all."
