BEHIND THE SCENES AT THE 
ALI - MAHFOOD FIGHT!
Photos and Story By Sue TL Fox

I had decided that it was time to meet Laila Ali.  She was one of the boxers that I had never covered ringside, and felt that this would be a good fight to meet her.  I had heard very good things about Ali and the improvements that she has made in the sport...I also knew that Valerie "The Wolfe" Mahfood would be one of her toughest fights and that it was surely going to be an action-packed title fight to cover.
