Rock 'N Rumble VIII: Andy Frawley
Monday, March 5 2018
During the coming months, we’ll be highlighting our fighters in training for the upcoming Rock ‘N Rumble VIII in Boston on May 17th. They’ve committed to four months of fundraising and training in preparation to get in the ring and literally fight for a cure. Whether their mom is battling, their father has passed or their friend has put up a victory against the disease – they’ve all got a story to tell and they’ve all got a reason to fight. Below you’ll hear from Andy Frawley, fighting out of the EverybodyFights.
Where are you from?
Where’d you go to college?
University of Maine undergrad, Babson MBA
Did you play any sports growing up?
Ski, golf, baseball, football
What do you do for work?
I work in advertising, marketing and media. I am chairman of cybba and on the board of a couple of other companies. Prior to a year or so ago I ran Epsilon the worlds largest marketing services company.
Why boxing? Did you ever picture yourself fighting?
Why on earth did you sign up to fight??
I started to box just to improve my fitness. I fell love with boxing and the whole culture. I felt that to fully experience it I had to fight in a real fight.
You’re stepping in the ring to literally fight for a cure - where are you drawing your inspiration from? How has cancer affected you?
I have had a number of friends who have had cancer and have received amazing treatment at the facilities in Boston. One of the things that inspires me is bringing the care out to the local communities in New England
What is going to be the most difficult thing to give up during your training? (beer, cheeseburgers, time spent watching TV?)
When you’re not throwing punches and training -- what other hobbies/interests do you have?
In the summer I play ALOT of golf in the winter I ski. Somewhat lucky that the snow is bad this year so skiing has not been impacting my training
Who do you think is the most excited to watch you get punched in the face come fight night?
The list is very long. I think my 19 year old son may be at the top of the list.
