Backend not invoked

I am looking at forwarding HTTP (front end) to HTTPS (backend). Backend is not being invoked.
Simplified to only HTTP to HTTP, still no luck.
HA-Proxy version 1.8.7 2018/04/07

Debug mode shows only this
haproxy -f /etc/haproxy/haproxy.cfg -d
Available polling systems :
epoll : pref=300, test result OK
poll : pref=200, test result OK
select : pref=150, test result OK
Total: 3 (3 usable), will use epoll.

Available filters :
[TRACE] trace
[COMP] compression
[SPOE] spoe
Using epoll() as the polling mechanism.

Pointed the backend to a HTTP end point on local server.
I see the request being forwarded. Since there were no logs to indicate request was being forwarded, I assumed request was not being forwarded.
Need to test with HTTP (front end) to HTTPS(backend)

This requires adding to the server config line the ssl keyword and either the CA certificate (ca-file /path/to/ca-cert.pem) or disable cert verification (verify none).
