Nico Ali Walsh, Mohammad Ali’s grandson, wins his third fight of 2021!

Following into the steps of his grandfather, Nico Ali Walsh won his third fight of the year with a majority decision over the previously unbeaten Reyes Sanchez in a non-title middleweight fight on Saturday at Madison Square Garden in New York.

Ali Walsh tried to get the knockout in the fourth round but Sanchez proved to be an evasive target as the fight went to the scorecards.

Ali Walsh, who turned pro four months ago, has improved to 3-0 by winning the four-round fight on two of the three judges’ scorecards.

One judge gave Ali Walsh all the rounds while another scored it even, 38-38.

While the third judge scored it 39-38.

Ali Walsh said he was thrilled to be fighting in the iconic arena where his grandfather battled Joe Frazier for the heavyweight championship in March 1971.

“It is amazing,” the 21-year-old Ali Walsh said.

“This (Garden) is a piece of history. Just to be in here, let alone fighting here, is a big honor.”
