I'm never going to be upset if I don't lose, I'm happy that it went four rounds because now I know what it feels like.

My first fight really wasn't much of a fight." On December 10, 1999 at the Cobo Center Riverfront Ballroom in Detroit, Michigan, a crowd of over 2,200 saw Ali, who weighed in at 166 lbs, win by second-round TKO over Nicolyn Armstrong (179 lbs), who dropped to 1-4.

“Laila’s approach to the wedding was simple but elegant,” says wedding coordinator Juliet Ryan. It was about the love.” The pair met two years ago when Conway hosted a small get together at his house, which Ali attended with a friend.

Conway, 36, then popped the question last Thanksgiving.

If any of his children had become a boxer, their career would be a "human interest" story of a high order.

When one of his daughters chose to box, she became a new reason for the media spotlight to focus on women's boxing.

By coincidence, Laila Ali's ring debut occurred just one day before what was supposed to be the first male-female professional bout ever to be sanctioned by a US state boxing commission ... The near-alignment of the two events focused more attention on female professional boxing than there had been since Christy Martin's 1996 pay-per-view fight with Dierdre Gogarty.

Referee Sam Williams stopped the bout immediately, awarding Ali the knockout. Armstrong, 31, who had won her pro debut but lost her previous three fights by first-round KO, earned ,500.

On March 7, 2000 at Casino Windsor in Windsor, Ontario, Canada, Laila (160 lbs) moved to 4-0 with 4 KO's by knocking out Crystal Arcand (169 lbs) of St. Arcand, a former Toughwoman competitor, was making her pro debut after going 5-0 in amateur action.
