About Laila Ali

Laila Ali had big gloves to fill as the daughter of a boxer known as “The Greatest.” She clearly fulfilled expectations, going 24-0 in her pro boxing career. But Laila took to social media to carve out a more peaceful second career. Her 475K+ Instagram fans find the retired boxing legend creating “meals with positive vibes,” frequently including cooking tips in the comments of her food posts. Their popularity led Laila to publish her first cookbook, Food for Life, set for release in January 2018. Laila also treats 130K+ Twitter followers to diverse posts and retweets highlighting her many interests and endeavors—as she says, she’s a “Television Host, Fitness & Wellness Expert, Author, Speaker, Mother, Wife...And I can cook!”
