Muhammad Ali’s grandson has hands.
At the 2022 PFL World Championships on Friday, Biaggio Ali Walsh, grandson of the boxing legend, opened the show in an amateur MMA bout against Tom Graesser, and Ali Walsh did not waste any time showing off his boxing pedigree.
Ali Walsh immediately got to work, tagging Graesser multiple times and putting him in defensive mode. Ali Walsh stayed on his retreating opponent with combinations, ultimately landing a sharp right hand that dropped Graesser and caused referee Keith Peterson to intervene.
Check out the video below of the brutal knockout.

This was Ali Walsh’s second win in amateur competition. After the talk, the UNLV former running back spoke about the pressure from his famous ancestor. He said that while he can handle the pressure, he doesn’t feel pressure to become a pro and is willing to gain more experience to help him make the leap.
