Azumah Nelson's son, Dalvin Azumah Nelson Jnr, has captured the attention of major eye balls with his hopeful strides as an emerging boxer.
At 23 years, Dalvin is yet to come close to his father’s accomplishments as a world champion when he was his age.
However, a determined Dalvin is still hopeful of making it to the top.
He credits his admirable strides as a boxer to his father, who dominated the WBC Featherweight and Super featherweight divisions for more than a decade.
In an exclusive interview with TV3's Juliet Bawuah, Azumah Nelson Jnr, said the first thing he assimilated from his dad was his boxing skills.
Dalvin detailed that he settled on boxing as a career when he was in junior high school and they went for a competition in Australia.

He recounted that they came to his corner to tell him to take it easy on his opponent, and since then, he knew boxing was what he wanted to do.
However, he noted that his growth has not been devoid of hard work while indicating he aims at winning a world title in boxing.
''It will come with working hard and following my own footsteps and be the best version of myself.
''Hard work is what keeps me going. There is no food for the lazy man,'' he told TV3.
Dalvin owned his moment as he flaunted his skills as a boxer.
''I can brawl, and I can box. I am a student of the game, always willing to learn something new.
I have got a good right hand. When it lands well, you will feel it. I am good with body shots, too. When it touches you, you will cringe,'' he said.
