Stars compete in qualifying and knockout stages culminating in a series of finale fights where $1million is up for grabs.

As Biaggio is yet to turn professional he is not eligible for the winner-take-all league – but he knows how he would spent the cash prize.

He said: “I fight so that I can help people. That’s kind of ironic too, because I’m beating people up.

“But I fight to help people, I fight so that I can one day become a champion in the PFL.

“To become a champion you win the belt and $1million and I think $1million is enough money to help a lot of people.

“I just want to be able to give back and inspire people the way that my grandfather inspired me.

“I think that’s what’s most important. I just want to get to heaven when I die, that’s the main goal.”

Biaggio, 24, has already got a head start by providing care packages for the homeless.

He said: “I actually called one of my team-mates, Nikolas Motta, he’s fighting this weekend in the UFC, he’s an up-and-coming lightweight.

“And we went to the Dollar Tree and got like 20 bags with some snacks, some water, some soup, toothpaste, toothbrush and we just put together 20 bags and just drove around downtown and gave it to people that were on the street homeless.”

Biaggio is 3-1 and returns this Friday in Atlanta against Travell Miller in another bout where he carries his iconic surname into the cage.

He said: “I think the pros is you have such an inspirational figure, almost like a superhero and you’re related to that person.

“His blood runs through my blood and I think that is a huge pro. Another big pro is getting the opportunities that I’ve been given.

“Getting the exposure, that’s a huge pro. But there’s cons as well, there’s pressure, there’s a huge target on my back just because of my name.

“Just because of my existence, when I fight people are going to try their best to hurt Muhammad Ali’s grandson.

“So with that comes pressure as well I think that’s one of the cons but what is more important is how you deal with the cons.”
