Sharing his heartfelt support for the two-time world heavyweight champ, Drake continued:


I wish 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, get the work done, and then afterwards f*cking sing your heart out or say whatever the f*ck you want to say.

He concluded, ‘Looking forward to seeing the end result this weekend. Wishing you the best, always.’

Trust me Drake, once I’m done with him he’ll be running through Alabama with his woes! God Bless You G
