Jake Paul lost against Tommy Fury in Saudi Arabia and now, he’s blaming Drake for it! This guy always finds someone to blame when he loses against the boxers he’s supposed to lose against.
There was no way he was going to knock out Tommy Fury, but as usual, he’s found someone to blame his failure on, and that’s Drake via the Daily Mail;
Jake Paul joked he was cursed by Drake betting $400k on him to beat Tommy Fury in their boxing match on Sunday after his defeat on points to the Brit in Saudi Arabia.
The Canadian rapper would have pocketed a stunning $1.2million if Paul had done the business in the ring, but he lost on points against Fury.
Speaking in a post-fight press conference, Paul was told about his friend’s huge bet.
‘F***! This is Drake’s fault!’ Paul said, laughing. ‘Drake, bro, why did you do this to me?
‘No, it’s my fault. 400,000 is nothing to him – he has won a lot more money betting on me before. He’s probably about even now. Sorry Drake, I’ll get that W in the rematch.’
Drake shared the details of his big-money bet on social media earlier on Sunday with the fight only hours away.
Drake’s gambling selections were once something he was mocked for – he picked so many losers that fans would joke about the ‘Drake curse’.
In recent times, he appeared to have turned a corner after he backed Argentina to win the World Cup final against France – although his bet didn’t win because the game was won on penalties – and for the Kansas City Chiefs to win the Super Bowl 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, and yet still made a profit.
He wagered a total of $965k on the bets, and won $1.477m, making an overall profit of $512k.
Last month, the ‘Laugh Now Cry Later’ artist netted a $2m payout by placing a $1m winning bet on the Chiefs to beat the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Championship.
However, there have also been some big losses.
