Some people are having a hard time staying in shape due to COVID-19 (coronavirus) lockdowns, but not former world champion boxer David Haye and his 11-year-old son Cassius Haye (who he had with ex-wife Natasha Haye). David and Cassius Haye have been actively working out during the UK coronavirus lockdown, and David Haye has the Twitter posts to prove it.
On April 2, David Haye posted a picture on Twitter of himself and his son posing after a workout, showing off not only his, but also Cassius’ impressive physique. In the caption, David Haye saluted NHS (National Health Service) workers and spoke about how his son keeps him active: “Tough times for many and uncertain times for all, but we are staying positive. Shoutout to the @NHSuk workers on the frontline of this battle. You’re the heroes in this war. I’m training with my 11-year-old @MrCassiusHaye- he’s putting me through my paces everyday! Stay safe.”

In an April 4 Twitter post, David Haye posted a short video of himself working out alongside his son. The caption encourages people to stay active during the lockdown, as it reads: “No gym, no problem @MrCassiusHaye. Tag me into your family workouts, lets see how you’re keeping moving during #lockdown 👊🏾 #fatherson #hayemakertrainingcamp #fitness #fitnessmotivation.”

Cassius Haye is indeed quite muscular for his age, so much so that he is nicknamed “Mini-Hercules”; though he was named after boxing icon Muhammad Ali (Ali’s original name was Cassius Clay). Despite his namesake, Cassius does not seek to take up boxing as his father did; he prefers tennis and is hoping to become a professional tennis player. To that end, Cassius trains eight hours a week and has been competing since he was 4-years-old. David is fine with his son taking up tennis over boxing, saying: “It’s a nice sport, tennis. No punches to the head. It’s a pleasant, healthy day out. No hooligans.”
