Leonard's recent post is not the first time he is giving fans a glimpse into his special moments with Daniel. Taking to Twitter in 2016, the former boxer shared a clip of the father-son duo.

The hilarious clip showed Leonard admitting that he lost a golf bet to the then-15-year-old Daniel. The former boxer accompanied the video with the caption:

"My 15-year-old son Daniel beat me in a golf bet??."

Leonard rose to the spotlight as a boxer in the '70s. In 1976, he won a gold medal at the Olympic games and became a professional to relieve his family from debt.

With his speed, remarkable strength, and striking personality, Leonard soon became a fan favorite, with some believing he was the Muhammad Ali of his time.

During his 20-years-long career, Leonard defeated several great boxers, including Wilfred Benitez, Roberto Duran, Thomas Hearns, and Marvelous Marvin Hagler.
