Today, the Boston Uprising announced the signing of a two-way contract with tank player, Cameron “Fusions” Bosworth. Fusions joins the Boston Uprising after two seasons spent on London Spitifire’s Contender’s team British Hurricances. More recently, he also stepped in as Team United Kingdom’s main tank for the Overwatch World Cup at BlizzCon. He will start the year on Toronto Esports, the Boston Uprising’s official Contenders team.

The Overwatch League two-way contract system means that Fusions will take up a spot on both the Contenders roster and the official Overwatch League 12-man roster. Additionally, teams are only permitted four two-way players at a time. In the event that Fusions appears in more than two Overwatch League matches, he would no longer be allowed to play Contenders matches on Toronto Esports.
Fusion’s addition to the Overwatch league follows his fantastic performances at the World Cup, where the young player stepped into a roster and delivered as the team’s main tank. Despite his lack of high level experience, he impressed on the international stage and showed the strength of UK talent. During a press conference last weekend, he stated that he was nervous to take over a leadership role in Team UK, but had no problem slipping into the British machine.
Boston Uprising President of Gaming, Chris “HuK” Loranger, had this to say about the acquisition.
“We are excited to add Cameron ‘Fusions’ Bosworth to our roster,” saidChris “HuK” Loranger, President of Gaming for The Kraft Group. “We feel that ‘Fusions’ will be an important part of both the Uprising and Toronto Esports and we look forward to having him as a part of the team.”
Fusion’s addition to the Overwatch League brings up the league’s United Kingdom representation to three. Isaac “Boombox” Charles is currently a flex support for the Boston Uprising while Harrison “Kruise” Pond recently joined Overwatch League Paris as team leader and main support. Following a year where it seemed that European talent was increasingly devalued, Fusion’s entrance into the league is another step in favor of the West.
