It looks like the fight between Claressa Shields and Laila Ali might be getting closer to actually happening.

Shields was being interviewed at the Wilder vs Fury pre-fight when she issued another challenge to Ali. This stems from an interview that Laila Ali gave to ESPN where she actually said that she would come out of retirement to fight Shields.

This is a big step from the trash talk that had been going on between these two women.

Ali said that if the purse is right, she will come out of retirement to fight Shields so she could "Shut that mouth."

Shields responded by simply saying that she was done talking, and it was time to fight. I know that boxing fans all over the world would love to see these two in the ring, and you already know we are in Shields corner 100%!

Claressa summed up her thoughts on the potential fight on Instagram.

So now all we can do is sit back and hope the fight actually happens.
