It is becoming inevitable to deny the validity of the Drake curse. Any athlete that meets Drake prior to a match loses the match eventually.
A coach in MMA is taking extra steps to ensure that his fighters go unaffected by the rapper’s voodoo. After a picture of former heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua and drake appeared online, John Kavanagh, who is the head coach of Conor McGregor and SBG Ireland, delivered a fair warning to Drake, “If Drake ever tries to visit my gym he’s getting roundhoused,” Kavanagh wrote on Twitter.
He tweeted this after Anthony Joshua was defeated by Andy Ruiz this past Saturday, a result that took the boxing world by surprise. Anthony Joshua had met with Drake prior to the match, he shared the picture with the Canadian musician with the caption “bout to break the curse”. But not even he could combat the rapper’s sorcery.”
A video even took over the internet of an interview Joshua had before the match with Ruiz on The Michael Kay Show on ESPN New York, where he discussed the probable “Drake Curse”.
The funny thing about Kavanagh’s statement is that, McGregor has twice had pictures with Drake and has lost on the two occasions. Drake came up on stage during McGregor’s fight with Floyd Mayweather during their press conference in Toronto.
The second time McGregor had an encounter with Drake was when McGregor brought Drake on stage during the ceremonial weigh-ins for the UFC 229 when he fought Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Boxing promoter, Lou DiBella also echoed Kavanagh words and mentioned that he would place a clause in his fighter’s contract stipulating that Drake wouldn’t be allowed near his fighters.
