Young Money star Drake will make his boxing debut (kind of) when he walks undefeated super lightweight champion Devon Alexander "The Great" to the ring. Drake will perform his "Forever" hit single before the fight this Saturday (March 6th) which will be televised live on HBO. According to multiple reports, Drake met the boxer while in Las Vegas when Alexander was training for the fight.
"Naturally I’m a big fan of Drake’s," Alexander said in a statement. "He’s a really nice guy and I like the ‘Forever’ lyric. I’m looking forward to hearing it as an added bit of motivation while I’m walking into the ring to face Juan Urango on Saturday night at Mohegan Sun." Fight promoter Don King even weighed in saying "I’ve always loved music and Drake is one of the hottest artist’s in the world today," King said. "We’ve got the best young boxer in Devon Alexander and this sparkling young singer Drake. It’s going to be something special on Saturday night."
