Biaggio Ali Walsh looks to make it five straight first-round KO/TKOs in an amateur lightweight bout that opens tonight’s main card in New York City. Ali Walsh made his PFL debut at Madison Square Garden last year during the 2022 PFL World Championships, knocking out Tom Graesser. Since then, Ali Walsh has racked up first-round stoppages of Isaiah Figueroa and Travell Miller.
Ed Davis made his amateur debut just last year and has already picked up two wins via knockout and a lightweight title. He enters this fight after dropping a decision to Kyle Pufahl in February.
Under the bright lights of MSG, these two amateur fighters look to take another step closer to the professional ranks.
