TMZ recently caught up with the 37-year-old retired pugilist at Los Angeles International Airport. The conversation tumblr_nhkcknFStf1qd5r6yo1_250started with her opinion on the upcoming Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao superfight     (she thinks Floyd Mayweather Jr. will pull out the win), but it shifted, as common law decrees all fighting conversations must do, to whether she could take Rousey.

An undefeated (24-0) super middleweight during her fighting career, Ali initially said the question was pointless. She’s a boxer, Rousey is a mixed martial artist. These are not one and the same.

“That’s like a question I’m not even gonna answer,” Ali said. “Because, for one, I’m not a UFC fighter. She’s not a boxer.”

That’s it. That’s all Ali had to do—state the obvious and dismiss the question as dumb hypothesizing over a bout that will never take place.  But then Ali gave an answer. “And no woman in the world can beat me. Period,” Ali added.  Not even Rousey? See the full story here
