The Drake Curse Lives On: Anthony Joshua Loses Heavyweight Titles in Historic Upset
Pray for The Raptors.
The infamous “Drake Curse” appears to have claimed another victim.
Last night, Andy Ruiz Jr. served Anthony Joshua the first loss of his professional career, stripping the former heavyweight champ of his three title belts with a TKO in the seventh round at Madison Square Garden. Joshua was favored to win with 11-1 odds, but it seems his association with the Toronto rapper may have gotten the best of him.
Daaamn, did Andy Ruiz really just expose Anthony Joshua at MADISON SQUARE GARDEN 💀😳

Back in March, the British boxer claimed he was “bout to break the curse” when he posted a photo of himself with the self-appointed 6 God. So much for that. Drake’s proximity to any team or athlete has become something of a bad omen over the last few years. So bad, in fact, there’s been speculation over whether he was deliberately attempting to counter his own shitty juju by wearing 76ers shorts when the team squared up with his beloved Toronto Rappers in the Eastern Conference semis. They lost the series and The Raptors eventually moved past the Milwaukee Bucks to enter the NBA finals for the first time in the franchise’s history.
They’re currently up a game on the Golden State Warriors. And if they stand any chance to take it all home, Drake might need to sit the next few out.
