Muhammad Ali’s grandson, Nico Ali Walsh, is to make his professional boxing debut on August 14 in a four-round middleweight fight.

The 20-year-old star, who is the son of Rasheda Ali Walsh, Ali’s daughter, has signed a multi-fight deal with Top Rank and his opponent has not yet been revealed.

Ali Walsh is taking on a huge legacy with many boxing fans believing his grandfather was the G.O.A.T.

“The Greatest” Ali, who died of septic shock in 2016, fought in 61 professional fights, winning 56 and losing five.

And while many would be scared to not live up to the fighter his grandad was, Ali Walsh says he is excited to get in the ring and show what he can do.

He said: “I’m doing what I love. Signing with Top Rank is a dream come true. I’m going to have fun on Aug. 14 and the next time I fight.

“Top Rank will give me the name, date and location, and I’ll have a great time. I am honoured to continue the fighting legacy that my grandfather started. It is a responsibility I don’t take lightly.”

The fighter isn’t inexperienced as he has had around 30 amateur bouts, making his debut as a child at the St. Baldrick’s Foundation.
