‘It is real, I took a picture with Drake before Miller got banned’ – Anthony Joshua confirms he’s a victim of the rapper’s ‘curse’

Anthony Joshua and Drake

British-Nigerian heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua, is the latest sports star to be affected by the ‘Drake curse’ after his opponent Jarrell Miller failed a drug test.


US boxer, Miller tested positive for a banned substance on April 17, less than a month after Joshua posted a picture of Drake on his Instagram account on March 21, leading to the fight which was supposed to take place in June cancelled.


Speaking on The Michael Kay Show in New York ahead of his bout with late replacement Andy Ruiz Jr, the 29-year-old said:

‘You know about the Drake curse? It is real though. Do you know what is weird actually? I took a picture with Drake before Miller got banned.’

‘Miller had his drug test and the whole fight went to pot. The fight got cancelled.’


Other victims of the supposed Drake curse who lost their next games after getting a selfie or picture with Canadian rapper Drake are Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba and Paris Saint-Germain defender Layvin Kurzawa among others.
