We're like friends now. Ali made sure that the freezer in his hotel room at The Bellagio was stocked before his grandchildren came to visit. And he said that he did, but he told me to always stay humble. But we kept it a secret, because we didn't want people to be me and Nico's friends just because of who we were related to.". "He had to talk because boxing was more individual," Ali-Walsh said. Still, he never fell in love with boxing, and his breakneck speed (Ali-Walsh runs a 4.41 40-yard dash) made him a star running back on a Bishop Gorman team that’s won 54 consecutive games.
"My dad loved magic," said Rasheda Ali-Walsh, Muhammad's daughter and Biaggio's mother.
It's not even just the football. "They had spikes around their necks. Eighth grade, I took a year off. "He had a ton of Popsicles in his freezer," Ali-Walsh said. So really, it was my speed. Many know the legend for his flashy pre-fight trash talk -- something that his grandson learned was simply a veneer for the public.

BA: In flag I was a receiver, and my first year of tackle I was a defensive end. We text all the time. So freshman year was my first time playing running back. I think it was my speed [that caused coaches to move me over]. Ali-Walsh shared some of his memories of growing up with "Poppy.". I think it was my vision, too.
SI: Your grandfather was known for being an activist and voicing his opinions on matters beyond sports. Lorenzo Fertitta [a Las Vegas entrepreneur, casino executive and sports promoter] has a private gym under Red Rock [a casino resort on the west side of Las Vegas], and you have to know him to [work out] there. His name was Bruce Weber. In 2007, during Ali-Walsh's fourth-grade basketball game, the secret was let out when Ali decided to drop into a Las Vegas gym to surprise his grandchildren. That's why he did the talking.
