Tattooed MMA Fighter Acts Tough, Gets Knocked Out Instantly (Video)
Laila Ali Says She Could Beat Ronda Rousey (Video)
TMZ caught up with Laila Ali at LAX over the weekend, so obviously the first question they asked the retired women’s boxing champ and daughter of Muhammad Ali is who’s gonna win the upcoming Mayweather-Pacquiao fight. (Her metaphorical money is on Money, if you want to know.) However, the second question and Ali’s answer were a lot more interesting.
You see, the camera guy asks Ali if she could beat UFC champ Ronda Rousey. And at first it seems like she’s gonna give the diplomatic “well, I’m a boxer, she’s an MMA fighter” answer, which would have been reasonable. After all, it really is kind of impossible to answer the question.
However, after starting out along the diplomatic route, Laila suddenly remembered that she was the daughter of the greatest trash-talker in the history of sports, and that modesty is not her family’s strong suit. So then she completely changed her tune and basically said she’d whoop Ronda’s ass.
Take a look:
Now, Laila Ali was 24-0 in the boxing ring and held several titles. So she was no slouch. But at this point, personally, I wouldn’t bet against Rousey if she were taking on a whole team of ninjas.
Either way, though, classic answer from Ali. She really is her father’s daughter.
