Roc Nation Sports Wins Bid For Quillin-Korobov Fight, Hires Itskowitch As COO
Published August 19, 2014
BUILDING A REPUTATION: ESPN.com's Rafael wrote Itskowitch is a "highly respected and experienced executive with 18 years in the boxing business." Yormark said, "This is a serious business for us moving forward, and Dave has one of the great reputations in the boxing industry. Hiring him should be a loud and clear statement this is serious for us and that we will do this the right way." Itskowitch from '96-'00 worked for former HBO Sports Senior VP and promoter Lou DiBella. When DiBella "left HBO to found his own promotional company, Itskowitch went with him and worked as his right-hand man" from '00-06. Itskowitch then "joined powerhouse Golden Boy Promotions" as its COO, working for Oscar De La Hoya's company from '07 until "resigning last summer to take some time off" (ESPN.com, 8/18).
