DAVID HAYE speaks exclusively to Danny Flexen about his dark times out of the ring and his pride in seven-year-old son Cassius, a promising tennis player, in this week’s issue of Boxing News magazine. This is out now on our app and the print version is in stores on Thursday (March 24). Here is an excerpt.

“He loves it,” Haye smiles with genuine pride, before checking himself self-consciously and quickly glancing away. “It’s nice to see he’s got my desire to be the best at what he does. If there’s anything I’ve transferred to him, it’d be that winning mentality. He hates losing which is exactly how I am. Some people accept a loss very comfortably, I don’t, I never have. He’s not aggressive but it’s internally, I can see it tears him apart, but I like to see that. I’m really proud of him. He’s not similar to me at all. Physically he is, but he’s a lot more calm, a lot less naughty, a lot smarter, he goes to a good school.”
