Floyd Mayweather has more Skills Than Muhammad Ali
Daughter of the great Muhammad Ali Laila Ali, talks about her now-deceased father and what he thought of Floyd Mayweather. Did Ali like the direction boxing was taking before he passed, in terms of trash-talking? And what does she think of the whole Mayweather vs McGregor fight?
Firstly she says that her father never flaunted his money. And never used the kinds of language we have seen from some of thee fighters. Laila says that she is not into the May/Mac fight. She talks about how Conor McGregor is coming over to fight one of the greatest of all time, without ever having boxed professionally.
She does, however, go on to say that everybody has a punchers chance! But, she doesn’t see him getting past Floyd’s defence. MMA is different, different gloves. She compares the movement of MMA fighters vs boxers. Saying that when she saw Ronda Rousey and was asked if they fought what would happen? She knew she would knock her out, due to her lack of head movement.
If say McGregor did knock Floyd out, it wouldn’t be that he’s a better boxer. It was a lucky shot!
Comparing her dad vs Floyd Mayweather. Laila believes that Floyd has more skills. But, her dad came before Floyd and laid down the blueprint. She compares Muhammad in terms of love from fans and the boxing world in general. Muhammad would be a picture on the wall in peoples houses. In a time where people didn’t want to go against the establishment.
But someone like Floyd who is on Instagram, counting his money, flaunting billions of dollars. That’s cool, but it won’t make a difference 20 years from now! In comparison to the seismic waves that Ali created during his time on this planet.
