Nico Ali Walsh recently opened up about what he believes was the only fault his grandfather had. Muhammad Ali was one of the greatest boxers in the sport's history. However, he was not without his fair share of problems.

While in conversation with Brian Davis on the True Geordie podcast, Nico Ali Walsh opened up about whether Muhammad Ali had any regrets in his life. Despite revealing that his grandfather had none, Walsh did discuss one area where Ali could have improved himself, which the 21-year-old believes was his relationship with women.

"You know, it seemed like his only fault was women. He loved women. He had to have something. If he didn't have women then I personally don't know what it would be. I'm sure he doesn't regret anything. Because everything turned out the way it was supposed to be. I'm very happy it turned out the way it did."

The young professional pugilist went on to reveal that Ali was a charismatic individual even before he became champion.
