It's a little odd to talk about the Drake curse when the Toronto Raptors are up in the NBA Finals.

On top of Andy Ruiz's non-traditional body type, he was a late fill-in for the match and was supposed to be an easy stepping stone for Joshua in the English boxer's quest to become a marquee name in the fight game.
Twitter is having all sorts of fun with the huge upset:

OMG! OMG! I cannot believe this S$&@$! Anthony Joshua — holder of 3 belts, gets TKO’d by Butter Bean.......I mean some dude named Andy Ruiz JR. What a damn disgrace. Joshua looked completely gassed! More fatigued than hurt! Now how in the Hell did you let that happen? How?— Stephen A Smith (@stephenasmith) June 2, 2019

Sign of the Times: New heavyweight champ Andy Ruiz Jr., who beat Anthony Joshua last night, helped seal his fate as a fill-in to fight Joshua by contacting promoter Eddie Hearn on an Instagram DM after Joshua’s original opponent failed multiple drug tests. pic.twitter.com/veb8HDs1i6— Darren Rovell (@darrenrovell) June 2, 2019
