Nico Ali Walsh has a totally geared up fitness center bag to turn out to be the "large one".

Growing up as Muhammed Ali's grandson and not shying away from the sport in which your grandfather is known as 'The Greatest' and 'People's Champion' requires a high level of mental toughness and defiance. Boxing has always been part of Nico Ali Walsh's upbringing. It was hard not to fall in love with the way it tested him while also showing him what he was capable of as his skills continued to evolve.

Walsh (8-0, 5 KOs) learned early on that you could never escape the comparison and mention of the man he calls "Poppy." Rather than run from that pressure, the 23-year-old embraced it and found an advantage in knowing that with every fight he's not only creating his own legacy, but also enriching that of his legendary grandfather

Walsh meets Danny Rosenberger on May 20th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. His fight is one of the undercard headlines of Saturday night's event, where Devin Haney will defend his lightweight championship against Vasiliy Lomachenko, which will be televised on ESPN pay-per-view.

Walsh recently took a break between practice sessions to introduce M&F to some of his favorite fights in sparring and on the go.
