Ex-Light Heavyweight Champion Laila Ali is reportedly trying to make a comeback. The 42-year-old seems to be gunning for the current reigning champ in the female boxing world, Claressa Shields. Laila hopped in Claressa’s DMs recently, talking major smack and looking for all the smoke.

Laila went off, saying… “You are a real punk. Talking all that sh*t publicly but trying to make nice in private.” Claressa told TMZ that Laila wasn’t finished yet, as she continued to rant…

“I’m gonna teach you a whole lot of things that will make you a better fighter and person. Lesson #1: Learn to shut your mouth about money being there because it’s not there until it’s in an escrow account.”

Apparently Laila got on the Sway in the Morning Show back in January and told listeners Claressa could never beat her, and she also said Clareasa wasn’t that talented. They say Laila thought Claressa had once said she wasn’t a good businesswoman, but in her interview with TMZ, Claressa vehemently denied ever saying that.

Claressa says she first sent the DM to Laila just to squash everything, but obviously, it backfired. At this point Laila only wants to let her boxing gloves speak. Is this fight a good idea? Laila Ali ended her career at 24-0, undefeated.

While Claressa Shields is considered the best female fighter in the game today, she only has ten fights under her belt – undefeated, 10-0. If the fight goes down… who you with? Until the next time it drips…
