Did The Simpsons Predict Anthony Joshua’s Defeat to Andy Ruiz?

And down goes the Brit…

I think we all know about the predictions that have come true from the Simpsons by now. Well, this defeat might be another one.

On Saturday, June 1st, Heavyweight World Champion, Anthony “AJ” Joshua, took on the disfavored Andy “Destroyer” Andy Ruiz Jr. AJ had been undefeated until Destroyer knocked him down last week in a shocking match.

Most people, of course, didn’t see this coming. But many are pointing to an episode of The Simpsons in which they claim this match was predicted in an episode. Like many other predictions that have come to fruition. In the episode “The Homer They Fall,” Homer gets himself into the ring with Drederick Tatum. (Tatum is their version of Mike Tyson.) Surprise, surprise, Homer wins the match. Watch the clip below, and you can see the similarities.

So maybe this isn’t exactly the same thing, but there are similarities. And given the way, The Simpsons have predicted things like the Siegfried and Roy tiger attack, and the invention of smartwatches, it is not too much of a stretch to say that this can be used as a prediction for the Joshua vs.Andy Ruiz Jr. matches.

For an even crazier prediction, check out the episode where they predicted Disney would buy Fox.
