At the height of his boxing career, Muhammad Ali would brag about his good looks to his opponents... or anybody who would listen.
Well, it seems like the late three-time world heavyweight champion and beloved global sports icon passed down some of his handsome genes and chiseled features to his grandson.
TMZ Sports is reporting that Biaggio Ali Walsh — the son of Ali's daughter, Rasheda Ali Walsh — has signed a contract with the Wilhelmina modeling agency, one of the more prominent modeling companies in the world.
"He has a great look. He's a well-rounded person. That's what we look for," a top Wilhelmina official told TMZ about Biaggio, adding that the 17-year-old could enjoy success beyond modeling — in "film, TV, commercial, print... everything."
The kid definitely has a look to him.
And in case you're wondering, young Biaggio seems to have inherited some of his famous grandfather's athletic genes as well.
Biaggio is a nationally ranked running back for Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas, where Snoop Dogg's son Cordell Broadus was his former teammate.
In fact, during Ali's funeral procession last week, Snoop posted an Instagram of him and "The Greatest" taking in a Bishop Gorman football game a couple of years back.
Check out this IG that Biaggio posted of Uncle Snoop and himself and some of his highlights on the football field as well.
Wilhelmina better hope that Biaggio's budding football career doesn't put any scars on that face of his, though. After all, they've invested in it.
