American middleweight prospect Niko Ali Walsh (6-0, 5 KOs) has yet to boast of any significant victories in the ring. Despite this, they talk a lot about him, because he is the grandson of the iconic heavyweight Muhammad Ali.
Ali Walsh is delighted with the current representatives of the heavyweight, but not
thinksthat “any of the boxing heavyweights of today could be compared with a grandfather. I agree, I am biased in this matter. But I think my grandfather is the greatest heavyweight in history. What do I think about today’s heavyweight? To me, he’s just wonderful. They are just phenomenal fighters. And Tyson Fury, and Oleksandr Usyk, and Anthony Joshua, and Deontay Wilder.”
“And this incredible Fury vs Wilder trilogy? the avenue opened up. One of the best in boxing history. I think these fighters would be competitive in any heavyweight era. But again, I’m biased. I think that grandfather would have beaten each of them.
Have you seen Ali Walsh in the ring before? Not scary! Already this weekend he will box with a certain
Billy Wagner on the undercard of the show Vasily Lomachenko vs. Jemaine Ortiz.
In August, Ali’s grandson knocked out Reyes, whom he had previously controversially defeated: knockout video. A little earlier, Niko met with the legendary Mike Tyson – they fed pigeons together.
