Muhammed Ali's grandson is every bit as great as he was!

Leaving us confused as to why we hadn't heard of him before, Biaggio Ali Walsh, the grandson of Muhammad Ali is making waves in both the fashion world and the sporting world alike.

Scoring himself a contract with Wilhelmina models and a spot as a running back for the UOC, it seems like this 19-year-old is already following in his grandfathers footsteps and living up to the Ali name.

The teenager, who grew up in Las Vegas, was always close with his grandfather, saying they spent as much time as they could together; “Every Thanksgiving and every time we got the chance, we'd drive out to Arizona or fly to Michigan and spend time with him. He loved magic tricks, so Nico would bring his magic kit, and we would show him cool tricks.”

Despite their close bond, Biaggo chose not to follow in his grandfathers footsteps by pursuing a career in boxing, instead taking a warmer liking to football. Discovering his passion for football in high school, the sportsman turned model has since progressed as an athlete, making it onto the team at the University of California.

And it's no surprise that his prominent features and chiseled jawline have also launched him in to a successful modelling career. Biaggio has already appeared in Vogue Italia, yet another pretty impressive achievement for someone so young. 

With an absolute icon as a grandfather and all this experience under his belt at such a young age, we're pretty confident that this isn't the last we'll be hearing of Biaggio.
