Muhammad Ali would be proud! The legendary boxer left a clear legacy in his family that is being followed. Two grandsons of one of the greatest boxers of all time are currently building careers in combat sports. And one of them flashed a spectacular finish over the weekend.
He was born Cassius Clay, but he’s best known as Muhammad Ali. The boxing legend has left an unforgettable and indelible legacy in the world of combat sports. And now two of his grandsons are following in his footsteps.
While Nico Ali Walsh has taken up boxing and boasts a fine 8-0 record at the age of 22 and is due to fight again in May, Biaggio Ali Walsh, who is two years older, is pursuing a career in MMA.
Biaggio now has four fights under his belt and holds a 3-1 record. In addition, last year he signed with the PFL, an American organization that has made a name for itself in the world. And promoting Muhammad Ali’s grandson isn’t that hard after all.
Especially when Biaggio is matching it with his performances and finishing one opponent after another. Or rather, he’s finished the last three in the first round, two of them in the PFL organization.
He notched his last win on Friday night when he faced Isaiah Figueroa on Saturday. The bout didn’t even last two minutes when Figueroa was saved by the referee at 1:41.
Ali proved that his grandfather used to be a phenomenal boxer and he destroyed his opponent with hard punches himself. The roots are simply undeniable in this case.
If the now 24-year-old fighter continues in a similar vein, he will surely get a lot of attention in the world of combat sports.
