“He is a bad man” – Muhammad Ali’s grandson stuns fans with amazing knockout at recent PFL outing

Biaggio Ali Walsh, who is the grandson of Muhammad Ali, won his second Professional Fighters League (PFL) fight by knocking out Isaiah Figueroa in Las Vegas. Walsh, aged 24, had his first PFL fight in November last year, where he impressively defeated Tom Graessar in just 45 seconds.

In his second fight, the grandson of Muhammad Ali started strong and threw some good combinations against Figueroa while also managing to prevent Figueroa from taking him down. Walsh hit Figueroa with a big right hand which almost caused him to fall. Then Figueroa managed to stay on his feet despite Walsh’s continuous attack.

Walsh landed another powerful right hand that hurt Figueroa. Then the referee stopped the fight to prevent Figueroa from taking any more damage. When asked about his win, Walsh highlighted the pressure he bears, considering Muhammad Ali is his grandfather. He stated that he will continue to make a name for himself like other fighters throughout the world.

“Every single fighter in the world wants to make their own name and I’m doing the exact same., I just have a famous grandfather that’s the only difference. That creates a bit more pressure and tension for my fights, but what happens when I step into the cage is what really matters,” he said in the post-fight interview.

In September 2022, Biaggio Ali Walsh signed up with the PFL as an amateur MMA fighter. He has won one fight in the PFL and has an overall amateur record of three wins and one loss. His grandfather is Muhammad Ali, who is one of the best boxers of all time. Ali Walsh used his impressive boxing abilities to dominate Figueroa and win the fight in the first round by TKO.

Walsh was submitted by Devin Rothwell in his amateur debut in June, but he quickly regrouped by knocking out Bradley Seaver at a Crown Fighting Championship event in Utah.
