Muhammad Ali‘s legacy … is in Flavor Flav‘s hands — ’cause the rap legend tells TMZ Sports he’s managing Muhammad’s grandson’s boxing career!
Flav was out in Bev Hills with TV pitchman Ron Popeil — when he told us all about his 15-year-old prodigy Nico Ali Walsh … a rising star in the sport (check out video below, he’s in white trunks).
“The boy is good,” Flav tells us … “That’s all I gotta tell you, he’s good. Come see the fight.”
Flav says Nico’s fighting in L.A. on July 30th.
Flav’s also a huge fan of Nico’s brother, Biaggio — a big-time high school football star and model … who also happens to be Flav’s godson.
Check out the clip … pretty cool stuff.
