It looks like great genes run in the family.

Biaggio Ali Walsh, the grandson of boxing legend Muhammad Ali, announced on Twitter that he has signed a contract with Wilhelmina Models, one of the biggest modeling agencies in the world. "So excited that I signed with Willhelmina Models! Thank you and I'm excited to work with you guys! @Wilhelmina," he wrote.

And he's not just a pretty face — like his grandfather, the 17-year-old is a killer athlete, ranking as one of the top high school football players in the country. According to CBS Sports, Walsh has offers to play college football at several Division I colleges, including the University of Arizona and the University of California.

Whether Walsh chooses to pursue athletics or modeling, one thing's for sure — he'll be a knockout.
