"She be stinging"

Laila is the second youngest of Muhammad Ali's nine children. She's decided to capitalize on her famous father and famous name by becoming a professional boxer.

Here are her stats (as of 6/8/01):

Age: 22
Height: 5' 10"
Reach: 70½"
Hometown: Beverly Hills, California
Record: 10-0 (8 KOs)
Division: Middleweight

Her first few fights were against some rather weak opponents where she scored some early knockouts. She was showing signs her father and being rather cocky, such as flexing her muscles to the crowd after knocking out her foes. After one her fights she was heard to say that she would knock out every one of her opponents... and that it was a promise.

One of her notable fights was on June 8th, 2001. A little more than 30 years ago, Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier had their first fight, and on this night Laila was to battle Jacqui Frazier, Joe Frazier's daughter. A sell out crowd at the Turning Stone Casino saw the fight go the full 10 rounds. Laila won the decision (79-73, 76-76, 77-75).
