Though so, the YouTube personality-turned-professional boxer promises the Canadian rapper that he is going to ‘get that W in the rematch’ vs. the British boxer.
AceShowbiz –Jake Paul has poked fun at his loss in the Tommy Fury fight. In a new interview, the YouTuber-turned-professional boxer jokingly said that he’s cursed by Drake betting on him to defeat Fury.
The 26-year-old social media personality and boxer suffered his first loss in the boxing ring on Sunday, February 26, falling to Fury via split decision for a 6-1 career record. Prior to the Saudi Arabia-based match, many believed he could take Fury down.
Among those supporters was music superstar Drake, who was rumored to have bet $400,000 on Paul to win. When Paul heard about this after the match, he joked that it was Drake’s fault he lost. “F**k, this is Drake’s fault?” he asked, sarcastically. “Drake bro, why’d you do this to me?”
The reporter who asked the question mentioned the “Drake curse,” a running joke that any team or athlete the rapper supports ultimately loses. However, Paul had nothing against Drake’s choice to back him.
“Nah, it’s my fault,” Paul said of the match. He went on to add, “$400,000 is nothing to him, he’s won a lot more money betting on me before so he’s probably about even now.”
Paul then apologized to Drake for losing him money, before saying that he is looking for a rematch vs. Fury, one that he hopes will feature a different result. “Sorry, Drake, I’m gonna get that ‘W’ in the rematch,” he promised.
Drake has had mixed fortunes since beginning his recent gambling campaign on combat sports, with his bets largely on UFC fights prior to this wager. He first bet on Jorge Masvidal in his grudge match with Colby Covington but the latter had his hand raised on a disastrous betting day for the Canadian star.
His poor fortunes then continued after he backed American Justin Gaethje to snatch the UFC lightweight title from Charles Oliveira, but he was choked out last year. However, despite a lack of success, Drake finally turned around his betting form winning a $1 million bet on Israel Adesanya who defeated Jarod Cannonier in a middleweight title defense.
Drake’s positive form then continued after he won another seven-figure bet on British pair Paddy Pimblett and Molly McCann at UFC London last March. The Liverpudlian pair followed Paul in demanding a prize from Drake after winning him the money, and the pair were gifted plush Rolex watches for their efforts.
