Drake loses £335k on Jake Paul after backing ‘leaked script’ for Tommy Fury bout
Drake has lost another high stakes sporting bet after wagering £335,000 on Jake Paul to beat Tommy Fury.
The rap superstar lost another huge wad of cash when Fury edged Paul on a split decision in Saudi Arabia. It seems Drake backed the bogus 'script' which did the rounds on social media saying Paul would win by a knockout in the 8th round – then again, that script also said Paul would walk down to the ring dressed as a baby.
Paul did manage to knock Fury to the canvas in the eighth round, but it was certainly was not a knockout blow or one which would clinch a victory. Unfortunately for Paul and Drake, it was not enough.

Drake placed a $400,000 (£335,000) bet on the Problem Child to emerge victorious in Saudi Arabia. Unfortunately for him, the three judges awarded the victory and the bragging rights to Fury.
One judge scored it 75-74 in Paul’s favour while the other two gave the victory to Fury with a 76-73 victory. Drake bet Fury to win when the odds were around 3.6/1 on the former Disney actor to win.
Had one of the other judges ruled in Paul’s favour, Drake would be salivating over winnings to the tune of around £1.2m. Unfortunately for him, he will be looking at a £335,000 hole in his funds. When he found out about Drake’s bet, Paul laughed and suggested he was the latest victim of the ‘Drake curse’.

'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 his bet on social media prior to the fight starting. His history on bets and supporting teams and sports people has been so bad in the past, sports fans dubbed it the ‘Drake Curse’.
Anthony Joshua lost to Andy Ruiz Jr soon after being pictured with Drake. When Argentina beat France on penalties in the World Cup Final, it appeared the curse had been broken as the Canadian gave his backing to Lionel Messi and co. However, he still lost this bet as Argentina won on penalties instead of in normal time.
