You could always just blag it and say you have. And then when, during the interview, they ask you about it, you could just lean back in your chair and put your hands behind your head and say "my degree is from the University of Life, prior to that I studied at the school of hard knocks", and give Eddie a cheeky wink. He'd fucking love that.
John has the advantage of already being familiar to Eddie, from the time when his madman guise informed him (via two sources at the NYSAC) that Matchroom were about to be refused a NYC promoter licence.

Hopefully Mikey will be on the September opening card. Eddie should throw a bunch of money at Loma and Bob for a mega fight with Mikey, not sure if Loma would be ready but its 4 months away so its just about doable.
I listened to the interview and it doesn't sound like he is that interested.

Both Hearn and Arum have made offers to the Charlos
Charlo's comments were interesting...

Says he wants DAZN Lion's only promotions. So it seems they might have countered Eddie with an offer of their own to co-promote and bring their own guys in.

Hearn said he doesn't have to be the sole promoter on DAZN, I guess we'll see if that's true. The Charlo's could be superstars, Hearn should take the deal.

He's already signed 6 fighters according to this, another 12 'on the verge' of signing.

Yes but when he says that, he means co-promotions, he's still the main promoter of any show. Just the same as his Sky deal, other promoters can get on that too, but they have to deal with Hearn.

How many matchroom shows since the 'exclusivity' has been co promoted (though all Matchroom led despite other names on the poster) - Quigg Frampton, Haye Bellew 1 & 2, Hearns US cards, any others?

He let Sauerland promote a Groves show once, with all his fighters making up the undercard, Froch/Kessler 2 as well.

AJ on Okolie-Chamberlain, all Joshua had to do was turn up at the pressers and it sold the event.

I wonder is Sulecki is one of them considering he's just promoted him against Jacobs - no idea who Sulecki is with though tbh.

Wouldn't be a bad move if he's going after the Charlos and has Brook and Jacobs all.around the same weight, obvs some of those can't fight but could do any of:

Jacobs v Jermall
Brook v Jermell
Jermell v Sulecki
Brook v Sulecki

Brook ain't going near Jermell. In fact he ain't going anywhere near the top 10 Jr MWs.
