Probellum is delighted to announce that leading boxing figure Mike Altamura will join its executive team as their new Head of Talent Development.
Altamura is one of the world’s most-respected boxing managers, advisors and international talent scouts. During his almost two-decade long career, he has helped to guide nine fighters to become world champions.
Hailing from Australia, Altamura is also the brainchild of MJA Platinum, which has helped to turn the prospects of today into the global superstars of tomorrow.
Altamura’s new and innovative approach to athlete development and management means he is a perfect fit for Probellum, as they bolster their all-star team with another key appointment.
The executive team already includes Richard Schaefer, one of the most respected and impactful boxing promoters of the last twenty years, who will serve as Probellum’s President, Eric Winter, a former UFC and Yahoo Sports executive, who will act as Probellum’s Chief Operating Officer, and Harrison Whitman, the former General Counsel of Top Rank, Inc, who will be Chief Strategy & Legal Officer of Probellum.
Elsewhere on the team, Anthony Petosa, an Emmy award winning content expert, will steer the look, feel and original-content arm of Probellum as the Executive Vice President of Production & Creative, and well-known boxing advisor and former Barclays Center executive, Anthony Catanzaro, will bring his athlete-first approach to Probellum as Vice President of Boxing Operations.
“It’s very humbling to link with such an esteemed collective of gifted operators in our industry,” said Altamura. “This truly is the dream team.
“Probellum’s fighter first ethos coupled with a globally inclusive vision will ensure the organisation positively impacts many people throughout the world. Let it flow!”
“Having someone of Mike’s expertise join our executive team at Probellum is a major positive for everybody involved,” said Richard Schaefer, President of Probellum. “Mike is respected worldwide and has been involved in the sport for almost 20 years, so he is certain to be a valued and important addition.
“In his new role as Head of Talent Development, he will be on hand to help implement our fighter-first initiative, so it is a major benefit to the athletes to have him on board. I can’t wait to begin working together.”
