Narrating what inspired his son, Mr Baffoe Larbi said:
“I was trained by the Late Napoleon Tagoe, he met me one day and invited me to the arena. I took my son along and the moment we got there, he took boxing gloves and started jogging around. I told him to stop but he obliged. Several attempts on many occasions to make him stop proved futile”.

“I see that fighting spirit in him so I had to allow him to do what he wishes to be in the near future so I have sorted to help in any way possible”.
