Anthony Joshua was a huge favorite as he entered the ring to defend his Heavyweight titles against Anthony Ruiz on Saturday night at Madison Square Garden. He left a former champion.
Ruiz knocked him down a couple of times in the seventh round and earned the TKO victory after Joshua struggled to stay engaged with the referee after the second knockdown.
The 29-year-old Ruiz became the first boxer of Mexican descent to win a heavyweight title. He’s now holds the IBF, WBA and WBO titles.

Joshua’s loss proves just how powerful the Drake curse is, and that despite the Raptors success, it’s still alive and well. The former champion posted a picture with Drake saying he was going to break the curse weeks before his loss.

Even if the Raptors are somehow able to break the curse, it would probably be a good idea to stay away from Drake before a big sporting event. The curse is strong and could easily return once it’s broken.
