Ali began boxing when she was 18 years old, after having first noticed women's boxing.
When she first told her father, Muhammad Ali, that she was planning to box professionally, he was unhappy about her entering such a dangerous profession.
However, Laila assured him she would be fighting women, not men, and she had his genetics.
