The two-time Grammy-nominated rapper will walk Alexander into the ring for his March 6 bout with Juna Urango at the Moehgan Sun in Las Vegas. Drake will perform the Boi-1da-produced hit, “Forever.”

“Naturally I’m a big fan of Drake’s," Alexander, who met Drake in Las Vegas while training for the upcoming match, said of Drake. "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.”

In related news, Drake just released “Over”, the first single from his forthcoming album, "Thank Me Later" which is slated to be released in May. The Devon Alexander "The Great" Vs. Juan Urango match airs on HBO at 9:30 pm ET/PT.
