"I ain't draft dodging. I ain't burning no flag. I ain't running to Canada. I'm staying right here. You want to send me to jail? Fine, you go right ahead . . . but I ain't going no 10,000 miles to help murder and kill other poor people." Muhammad Ali
Although other woman have proven to be heroes and pioneers of women's boxing, none have transformed the sport into what it is today more than Laila Ali—daughter of the great Muhammad Ali. At the age of 21, Ali made her professional debut at the Turning Stone Casino in New York. Her opponent Jacquie Frazier-Lyde, was the daughter of long-time Ali nemesis Joe Frazier. Over 100,000 people payed to watch Ali win the pay-per-veiw event in eight rounds.
