Is the Drake curse BACK? Canadian rapper LOSES $400k after backing Jake Paul to knock Tommy Fury out

Is the Drake curse BACK? Canadian rapper LOSES $400,000 after supporting Jake Paul to knock out Tommy Fury in Saudi Arabia – only for the Briton to emerge victorious on points

Drake has lost another big bet – this time after placing $400,000 on Jake Paul to beat Tommy Fury via knockout in Saudi Arabia.

The Canadian rapper would have pocketed a whopping $1.2 million had Paul done things in the ring, but he lost to Fury on points.

Drake shared the details of his big-money bet on social media earlier on Sunday, while the fight was only hours away.

Drake’s betting choices were once something he was mocked for – he picked so many losers that fans would joke about the “Drake curse.”

In recent times, he appears to have turned a corner after supporting Argentina to win the World Cup final against France – though his bet didn’t win as the match was won on penalties – and for the Kansas City Chiefs to win the Super Bowl to be won earlier in February.

But now, after Paul’s defeat, many will wonder if the Drake curse has returned.

The 36-year-old won just one of his seven Super Bowl bets as the Kansas City Chiefs clinched their second Lombardi in four seasons, yet turned a profit.

He wagered a total of $965,000 on the bets and won $1,477 million for a total winnings of $512,000.

Last month, the “Laugh Now Cry Later” artist earned a $2 million payout by placing a $1 million winning bet on the Chiefs to beat the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Championship. However, there have also been some major losses.

In December, Drake bet $1 million on Argentina to beat France in the World Cup final by the rules.

Unfortunately for him, Lionel defeated Messi & Co. the French in a dramatic firefight.

In addition, in November, he threw $2 million in Canadian dollars to Israel Adesanya to win UFC 281 over Alex Pereira, winning by knockout in the fifth round.

Tyson Fury also placed a hefty bet on his brother to take things against Paul instead.

“I have 100 racks on it for an in-distance break, so if he loses, I lose 100 sacks too. I got him on 3/1,” The Gypsy King told me iFL TV.
