Rap superstar Drake has sent a message of support to Tyson Fury ahead of his trilogy
fight with Deontay Wilder.
The Gypsy King takes on his bitter American heavyweight rival for the third time in
Las Vegas in the early hours of Sunday morning, putting his WBC belt on the line.
Wilder is desperate for revenge having been outclassed by Fury in their rematch, with
the Brit winning via a technical knockout in the seventh round after a draw first time
It was the first defeat of Wilder’s professional career, and the American will be eager
to put that straight against Fury in Las Vegas.
But while Wilder will have the majority of the support in Vegas amid Covid travel
restrictions, fans have been sending their good wishes to Fury too.
And surprisingly, rap superstar Drake is among those big names to have sent their
support to the Brit via a special video message ahead of the trilogy fight.
Drake said in the social media message: “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.
“I’m wishing you the best of luck this weekend, brother. I want you to just go out
there and continue the legacy.
“Do what you do. We all love you because you’re relentlessly yourself.
“So go out there and get the work done and afterward f*****g sing your heart out or
say whatever the f**k you want to say.
