At first, one couldn’t rouse an answer out of former boxing great
Laila Ali, but then, remembering the legacy of her father, who was
never one to shy away from some smack talk, Ali let a few verbal SLAPS fall out of her mouth when asked if she could handle MMA champion Ronda Rousey…
“That’s like a question I’m not even going to answer because, for one, I’m not a UFC fighter and she’s not a boxer, and no woman can beat me. Period.”
Not even Ronda?
“Of course not, she’s too much smaller than me anyway. She’s like the size of my daughter, my 3-year-old.”
– verbal SLAP –
But then Laila jumped on her Twitter, issued an olive branch that
clearly calmed and smoothed the waters…
“Let’s be clear. I’m retired and not interested in fighting anyone.
When asked questions, I just answer them honestly. Everybody stay relaxed!”
That’s right, Laila. You better backtrack before you get the smack-smack!
