#5:. His Daughter Is An Accomplished Boxer

When she grew up, one of Ali’s daughters would go on to become an accomplished professional boxer of her own.

Laila Ali, Muhammad’s second daughter with his third wife, Veronica, began boxing at the age of 18, and she began her career in October of 1999. She went on to have an incredibly impressive, undefeated career, concluding her last professional fight in 2007.
