More than 25 years after Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier fought for the last time, it was their daughters' turn to continue the historic rivalry when super middleweights Laila Ali and Jacqui Frazier-Lyde fought at Turning Stone Resort and Casino in Verona, N.Y. in 2001. The fight was the first pay-per-view boxing card to be headlined by women.
The fact that both women decided to follow in their fathers' footsteps is incredible in of itself, and was the main storyline behind the pre-fight hype. However, what made the fight even more special was, just like the first Ali-Frazier bout, both Laila and Jacqui entered the hyped fight sporting undefeated records, 9-0 for Ali and 7-0 for Frazier-Lyde.
And just like their fathers, there was no love lost between the two.
While the fight wasn't even close to being in the same league as their father's legendary duels, it also wasn't the farce that many expected, the Daily News reported at the time. Laila utilized her jab to keep Frazier-Lyde at bay for the majority of the fight and for the third time in four tries, an Ali defeated a Frazier, as the younger and more experienced 23-year-old Ali defeated Frazier-Lyde by majority decision.
