Laila Ali has been retired from the world of boxing for 13 years. However, the champs says she’ll step back into the ring and fight the current female boxing (self-proclaimed) GWOAT, Claressa Shields, IF the money is right.
Ali was on First Take talking BIG smack when asked about Shields and her proclamation of being the greatest woman (boxer) of all time. Over the last year, Shields has called out Ali several times saying she could take on the former champ AND take her down. But, on Friday morning Laila reminded folks that she’s had 21 knock outs and that she’s more than happy to make that 22, if she can secure the bag.

Laila Ali basically said: Since homegirl keeps calling me out & no female boxer has ever made a million. I'll come out of retirement if the bag is right, just to knock a bitch head off.

Look, we agree, this fight definitely deserves and million dollar (or more!) purse and we’d definitely be here for it. Claressa Shields, you’re move!
