Home » Watch Muhammad Ali’s grandson Biaggio score KO to improve MMA record as PFL star vows to create his own legacy in cage

MUHAMMAD ALI’S grandson Biaggio added another first-round knockout to improve his MMA record.

The lightweight prospect is still an amateur but is signed to The Professional Fighters League, MMA’s only seasonal format.

Biaggio returned to the cage in Las Vegas for his fourth bout, facing Isaiah Figueroa in front of a raucous home crowd.

And the 24-year-old lived up to the hype as he closed the show inside four minutes of the opening round.

The American landed a string of right hands, forcing Figueroa to retreat and cover up with his back against the cage.

But after a barrage of punches came in, the referee was left with no choice but to step in, improving Biaggio’s record to 3-1.

The ever-improving prospect continues to live up to his iconic grandfather’s name – but is out to be remembered on his own merit.

He said: “Every single fighter in the world wants to make their own name, their own legacy.

“I’m doing the exact same thing I’m just like any fighter I just have a famous grandfather that’s the only difference.

“With that, I get a little bit more pressure, a little bit more attention as well but what happens in the cage is what really matters.”

Biaggio last year signed with the PFL, which consists of qualifying and knockout stages, with two regular season bouts and play-offs.

Points are earned per method of victory in the opening two fights with the top four in each weight progressing into the semi-finals. 

From there, it is victory-or-go-home culminating in a winner-take-all finale fight where a title belt and $1million cheque lays in wait. 

But Biaggio – not yet pro – features as a special attraction on PFL undercards as he looks to learn his craft with the eyes of the world watching.
