Good genes definitely run in Muhammad Ali’s family. The late boxing icon’s grandson, Biaggio Ali Walsh, just scored a major fashion modeling contract — and he hasn’t even graduated high school yet.

Walsh, the 17-year-old son of Rasheeda Ali Walsh, signed with Wilhelmina Models, one of the biggest agencies in the world, according to People Style.

Walsh is also a football star on his high school team at Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas, so it’s clear the fitness genes also run in his family. And he’s not alone — his younger brother is following in his grandfather’s footsteps as a boxer.

Check out more photos of Biaggio from his Instagram below. Do you think he has a future in the business?
