Muhammad Ali broke down barriers and "...shook up the world." He was "The People's Champion" and "The Greatest."
Now, his legacy lives on through his grandchildren, Nico and Biaggio. Nico has taken on the burden of carrying his grandfather's name by lacing up boxing gloves and stepping in the ring, while Biaggio tackles a new challenge for the Ali name on the football field.
We are equally proud of both boys. It's always surprising when you witness real athletic talent at such young ages. It's been a thrill to watch. We're happy both boys are enjoying their respective sports and want them to stay focused and healthy. However, they know, it's their excellence in academics that we want maintained above all else. —Muhammad and Lonnie Ali
