Laila Ali, the daughter of boxing legend Muhammad Ali, appears to have taken a swipe at Floyd Mayweather as the former reminded the unbeaten US boxing champion that her father is still 'the greatest' boxer of all-time.

Mayweather, who will square off against Manny Pacquiao in the 'fight of the century' bout on May 2 in Las Vegas, had attracted widespread criticism last week as he said that he "couldn't care less" for upsetting people by claiming that he is better than Ali or Sugar Ray Robinson.

Mayweather had claimed that although he respects Ali and acknowledge all the past champions, he had done just as much for the sport as Ali had done in his days.

In response, Laila stated that just because Mayweather thinks he is the 'greatest' doesn't make it true, adding that the five-weight world champion is just wrong at the end of the day, reported.

Mayweather would go head-to-head against Filipino politician-turned-boxer Pacquiao in the richest fight in history at the MGM Grand Arena in a bid to prove that he is the greatest fighter of his generation.
