Former boxer Laila Ali says she could beat UFC champion Ronda Rousey in a fight.
Ali was stopped by TMZ cameras at a Los Angeles International Airport parking garage and was first asked about the upcoming bout between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, but the conversation quickly turned to a question about if Ali could beat Rousey.
“That’s like a question I’m not even gonna answer,” Ali said. “Because, for one, I’m not a UFC fighter. She’s not a boxer.”
“And no woman in the world can beat me. Period,” Ali added.
“Not even Ronda?” the cameraman asked.
“Of course not,” Ali said. “She’s too much smaller than me anyways. She’s like the size of my daughter. My 3-year-old.”
Ali has won all 24 of her career fights. Rousey, who is the UFC women's bantamweight champion, has won all 11 of her UFC fights, including nine by submission.
Let's b clear...I'm retired & not interested in fighting anyone. When asked questions, I just answer them honestly😊 Everybody stay relaxed!— Laila Ali (@TheRealLailaAli) March 9, 2015
