Boxing superstar Laila Ali, confirmed rumors of a possible comeback for an highly anticipated bout between dominant two titans in the history of female boxing. On Friday (Feb. 21st), Laila joined the ESPN ‘First Take,’ crew to discuss if she would entertain the possibility of exiting back after more than decade of retirement to fight rising three-division World Champion, Claressa Shields. The daughter of the ‘Greatest of All Times,’ Muhammad Ali, was asked about the prospect of a return to boxing and about fighting Shields, with whom he had some back-and-forth with in the media over the past year or so. “She’s been calling me out. She’s taken offense to some things I’ve said in the past that had nothing to do with her. And people are asking me: Would you come back? Well, I have to be inspired by the opponent. I have to be inspired by the purse, because I have multiple things going on, multiple streams of income. I don’t need to do it. I have to want to do it,” says Laila.
