Dr. Andrew Foy is a cardiologist, and the only cardiologist/boxing promoter in the US, and maybe the world. The Pennsylvania resident spoke to TALKBOX coming to the table with an intriguing skill set. His specialty is appraising research that has already been done. This seems a useful ability right now, as people sift through mountains of information on COVID-19 and try to make sense of their own best strategy to operate during this challenging time. Foy doesn't pull punches, regarding the risks of infection, but he is among the voices who belief opening up the nation for business is advisable. We ask Dr. Foy his take on when live boxing could and should come back to life in America and to give a thumb up or thumb down on UFC's return to action, May 9 in Florida.
