The daughter of the legendary boxer Muhammad Ali, Laila Ali spoke about the prospect of a rematch between Ronda Rousey and Holly Holm in an interview with Chael Sonnen.
Well, you won’t like it if you are a fan of Rousey. Laila said, “I personally do not think that she’ll beat Holly Holm [in a rematch], I think that if she fought her again, then the same thing and worse will happen. Holly Holm was just getting warmed up. You know what I’m saying? She was just getting warmed up. She had nerves, too. This was her big moment.”
The 38-year-old Ali, who retired as an undefeated American professional women’s boxer, is a legend in her own right. Believes that the former UFC women’s bantamweight champion has a lot of issues in terms of skills, and without taking care of them there is no chance Ronda can even compete against Holm.
For example, she points out that Ronda lacks head movement and without it she will keep on receiving similar treatment against good fighters. She also says that Rousey is a product of promotion and she has just faced 12 opponents in her career so far.
In that fight against Holm, you could see the frustration on Rousey’s face. If she fight’s like that she will only look stupid at the end and will end up losing every time.
