UK Overwatch talent Cameron ‘Fusions’ Bosworth has been called up to play for Boston Uprising in the 2019 Overwatch League season.
The main tank player previously played for London Spitfire academy/Contenders team British Hurricane, and signed a deal with Boston Uprising late last year.
He signed a two-way contract to both Boston and its partnered academy side Toronto Esports, and planned to start the year with the Toronto side. However, some dramatic circumstances saw Toronto Esports drop out of Overwatch, but now Fusions has been called up to play for Uprising.

Fusions said in a tweet he’s grateful for the opportunity and can’t wait to play.
Fusions call-up comes as South Korean player Young-jin ‘Gamsu’ Noh moves to the Shanghai Dragons.
Uprising have Park ‘Axxiom’ Min-seob stepping up to fill Gamsu’s shoes, with Fusions ready as the back-up tank.
The Overwatch community reacted excitedly to Fusion’s call-up. Here are a selection of tweets reacting to the news:
Good lad. Do me fucking proud like the legend you are
