LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Laila Ali stopped Valerie Mahfood in the sixth round of their super middleweight fight Saturday night to run her record to 15-0.
Ali, Muhammad Ali’s daughter, dominated Mahfood in a rematch of their Nov. 8 fight. Ali stopped Mahfood in the eighth round of that bout in Las Vegas.
Their rematch, scheduled for eight rounds, was on the undercard of the Lennox Lewis-Vitali Klitschko heavyweight title fight at Staples Center.
Ali, who lives in Miami Beach, won the first five rounds on all three judges’ cards. Referee David Mendoza stopped it at 1:17 of the sixth round after Ali was landing punches freely and Mahfood was unable to defend herself.
Ali has stopped 12 of her opponents. Mahfood, from Port Arthur, Texas, is 13-6.
Both fighters weighed 168 pounds.
