Drake Banned From Anthony Joshua's Dressing Room On Fight Night

Drake Banned From Anthony Joshua's Dressing Room On Fight Night

To prevent the 'Drake curse' from striking, Anthony Joshua is considering banning the Canadian rapper from his dressing room on fight night.

The 'Drake curse' has been in full effect of late. The likes of Conor McGregor, Neymar, Jadon Sancho and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, among others, have been severely affected.

And, not long ago, Joshua was snapped with Drake ahead of his world title defence against Andy Ruiz Jr.

He's aware of the curse sweeping the sporting bubble. But, in a bid to avoid his infamous voodoo, Joshua is set to ban Drake from seeing him before his fight in New York.

"Miller then had a drug test and got popped. The fight got cancelled!"

Ruiz Jr, 29, takes the bout on short notice and is a huge underdog. He's riding a three-fight win streak after suffering his first professional defeat to Joseph Parker.

Joshua, meanwhile, will be making the seventh defence of his heavyweight crown as he makes his American debut at the iconic Madison Square Garden.
