Muhammed Ali’s grandson signs with top MODELLING agency


Legendary boxer Muhammed Ali once famously described himself as "pretty", and it seems his grandson Biaggio Ali Walsh has now inherited that title.

17-year-old Biaggio took to Twitter last week to announce his excitement at being signed to one of the world’s top modelling agencies Wilhelmina – the same agency who represent former Disney stars Nick Jonas and Demi Lovato.

The high school student wrote to his 13,000 followers: "So excited that I signed with Wilhelmina Models! Thank you and I’m excited to work with you guys!"

And Biaggio – who is the son of Ali’s daughter Rasheda – seems to have inherited more than his good looks from his recently deceased grandfather as he is also a talented athlete.

According to TMZ the teen is one of the best school-level footballers in the States and has already received dozens of scholarship offers from colleges.

With so much going for him, we're sure this won't be the last we hear of Biaggio.
