The fighting world has been abuzz ever since Ronda Rousey’s 14-second domination of Cat Zingano. Laila Ali, daughter of Muhammed Ali, was one of the world’s greatest female boxers of all time when she retired a perfect 24-0 in 2007. Ali, who is currently a boxing analyst with NBC on Premier Boxing Champions, was asked by TMZ who would win in a fight between her and Rousey.
Ali started to take the diplomatic approach, saying “that’s not a question I’m even gonna answer,” but Ali couldn’t help but get sucked into it proclaiming, “and no woman in the world can beat me. Period.” When prodded further about “not even Ronda,” Ali quipped back, “Of course not. She’s too much smaller than me anyways. She’s like the size of my daughter. My 3-year-old.”
That response quickly got folks in a frenzy, but Ali went on Twitter to dispel any rumors about her possibly looking to set up a fight with Rousey.
