I’ll beat anyone’s ass who compares them T…

In a new interview with International Business Times, Laila Ali makes it very clear that she wants everyone to stop comparing Ronda to her dad, Muhammad Ali. “She’s pretty much been exposed,” Ali said. “She can’t take a punch. It doesn’t take anything away from her, what she did as a Judo champion, what she did in the Olympics. But she was basically built up by her promoter to be the best ever to fight, period, in any form of fighting, and it just never was true.”  “I’ve heard people say, ‘Well, Muhammad Ali lost, he’s still great,'” she said. “First of all, Muhammad Ali never lost like that. He never got in there and was made to look like a rag doll. And when he did lose, it was pretty much after he had been off for three years. He was in his prime, had to take time off, came back, fought the best, then he came back and had rematches against the best, so please don’t” I think comparing Ronda to Ali is insulting, well said Laila.-TO
