Golden Boy’s Dave Itskowitch & writer Michael Woods to speak at Ring 8

Tomorrow night’s (Tuesday, May 15, 7 PM / ET) special guest speakers at the Ring 8 monthly meeting, held at the historic Waterfront Crabhouse in Long Island City, will be David Itskowitch, COO of Golden Boy Promotions, and award-winning boxing writer Mike Woods.

In 2007, Itskowitch was selected as the Chief Operating Officer for Golden Boy Promotions.  The University of Wisconsin graduate previously served as Vice President of DiBella Entertainment and he also worked three years for HBO Sports.

Woods is a boxing writer for ESPN/NewYork.com and ESPN The Magazine, as well as editor-in-chief of www.thesweetscience.com.  Mike, a Ring 8 member, also does color commentary for boxing broadcasts.

“We’re very happy to have two guest speakers from completely different sides of the boxing industry,” Ring 8 president Bob Duffy said.

“I’ve known both of these young men for many years and they are highly respected in their fields.  David can tell us about the monthly boxing shows Golden Boy will promote in New York City, starting later this year at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, in addition to discussing the business end of boxing.  Mike has had his fingers on the pulse of boxing news, especially here in New York City, for many years.  He has covered some of the biggest fights in boxing and written about a wide variety of fighters ranging from world champions to prospects.  Mike has been very supportive of Ring 8 for a long time.”
