Laila Ali, women’s boxing legend and daughter of “The Greatest of All Time,” Muhammed Ali, is the latest in the long line of fighters to talk about UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey.
In talking with TMZ Sports recently, which you can watch above, Ali claimed that she could defeat any woman in the world before saying that Rousey is “like the size of her three year-old daughter.”
Ali, however, did point out that she’s a boxer, not a MMA fighter.
“That’s like a question I’m not even gonna answer,” said Ali. “Because, for one, I’m not a UFC fighter. She’s not a boxer.”
However, Ali was baited into going a bit further.
“And no woman in the world can beat me. Period,” said Ali.
“Of course not, said Ali. “She’s too much smaller than me anyways. She’s like the size of my daughter. My 3-year-old.”
Following the interview, Ali was quick to kill any momentum in talks of an Ali vs. Rousey bout, as she hopped on social media, posting the following comments on Twitter.
Let's b clear…I'm retired & not interested in fighting anyone. When asked questions, I just answer them honestly Everybody stay relaxed!
