TYSON FURY rubbished the supposed ‘Drake curse’ after the rap superstar backed the Gypsy King against Deontay Wilder.
The Canadian artist has been somewhat an unlucky charm for several sportsmen, who have posed for pictures with him and then lost.

Even Anthony Joshua, 31, was among the victims, after uploading a photo with Drake before his shock 2019 loss to Andy Ruiz Jr, 32.
But his great rival Fury, 33, overcame the myth, by knocking out Wilder, 35, in their Las Vegas trilogy fight.
Drake had wishes the WBC champion luck and some feared whether and some superstitious fans feared it would be a bad omen.
But not Fury, who later made light of the curse on his Instagram story.
He posted: “Curse? No such thing pal.”
Fury dropped Wilder three times in total but twice had to pick himself up off the canvas in round four.

The unbeaten Brit finally closed out the show, and their rivalry, in round 11 of the heavyweight classic.
Fury’s much-earned afterparty went on till the early hours of the morning in Sin City.
He told clubbers: “They’ll be talking about this f***ing fight a thousand years from today.
“They’ll say where were you? You were all here with the champ!”
Hours earlier, he said: “Am I the greatest heavyweight of my era? Without a doubt. Number one, numero uno. I believe I could beat anyone in history.
“Any man born, I believe I’ve got a really good chance of beating him.”
