Who would win in a fight: Laila Ali or Claressa Shields?

It's been 13 years since Laila Ali stepped into the boxing match, but that didn't stop her from saying she would come out of retirement and take on Claressa Shields, widely regarded as one of the best female boxers in the world. Ali, the daughter of legendary fighter Muhammad Ali, finished her career with a 24-0 record with 21 knockouts and has plenty of firepower to take down Shields. However, T-Rex is the undisputed middleweight champion and reaching her prime. Who would survive if the two fought in the ring? 🥊

13 years ago, Laila Ali ended her boxing career undefeated. That kind of championship pedigree doesn't just disappear and if she found herself in a fight with Claressa Shields, she would find a way to come up on top.

Ali always packed a punch. 21 of her 24 wins ended in a knockout and that's the kind of precision and power that can carry her against Shields. A motivated Madame Butterfly would trounce anyone, including T-Rex.

No matter how you look at it, Laila Ali is currently 42. There is no way she can keep up with a bouncy 24-year-old fighter at the top of the boxing world right now.

Shields' ability to dodge and counter will frustrate Ali. She might not have the knockout power of her veteran counterpart, but she has more than enough evasiveness to tire her out and win on the scorecard. T-Rex would dominate Ali.
