Prior to the fight, Drake gave some words of encouragement to Fury, saying “This is a video for the most psycho man that I know. He's mad in his head, but he has the purest heart, nicest guy. The Gypsy King, the scariest man in boxing." Of course, Drake is known for putting a curse on the athletes and teams that he supports, so it had some fans thinking that Fury would end up losing.
In the end, the opposite took place and fans were quick to take note of this on social media. In the tweets below, you can see numerous fans express their jubilation for Fury, noting that he finally broke the Drake curse. As it turns out, he also defeated the Versace curse, which was a known affliction in boxing.
Needless to say, Drake must have been a proud friend while watching the fight last night.
