Nico Ali Walsh Mother Rasheda Ali Bio
The boxer’s mother, Rasheda Ali, has quite a history. Being the daughter of the most celebrated athlete in modern history, often nicknamed The Greatest, or rather, The GOAT, Muhammad Ali cemented his family’s name into the greats and one of the most recognized surnames in history.
However, aside from his father’s legendary status, Nico’s mother also built herself quite a reputation by being an author, a public speaker, and an active Parkinson’s advocate. It is well known that Muhammad Ali was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, a brain disorder often categorized with difficulty in walking, stiffness, shaking, weak balance, and coordination.
Sadly, the boxer died due to Parkinson-related complications when he was 74 years old. This prompted his daughter to be vocal about the disease and write the book “I’ll Hold Your Hand So You Won’t Fall: A Child’s Guide to Parkinson’s Disease.”
Aside from Nico Ali, the couple also gave birth to another boy named Biaggio Ali Walsh.
He plays football and is an active athlete in his school.
