Jake Paul reacts to Drake curse – after rapper lost $400,000 betting on him to KO Tommy Fury

Drake lost a significant amount of money betting on Jake Paul’s bout with Tommy Fury. However, the YouTuber-turned-boxer has apologized to the musician.

Drake bet $400,000 that Paul will defeat Fury via a knockout in their match. If Paul would have won, Drake would have earned a potential payout of up to $1.4 million.

But as it turns out, Fury was the one who won the match.

After the revelation that Drake had lost $400k on a wager on him, Paul laughed it off and apologized to the music icon.

When questioned about if the fabled “Drake curse” had affected him, Paul joked: “F**k this is Drakes fault. Drake, why’d you do this to me?”

Paul then added:

“Nah nah, it’s my fault. $400,000 is nothing to him, so. He’s won a lot more money betting on me before so he’s probably about even now. Sorry Drake, I’m going to get that W in the rematch.”


Paul boxed valiantly and even dropped his opponent a few times. However, Fury won the match on the judges’ scorecards.

During his in-ring interview, Paul stated: “I’ll come back. I think we deserve that rematch. It was a great fight, a close fight,” Paul said during his in-ring interview. I don’t know if I agree with the judges. I got a 10-8 round twice, so it is what it is. This is boxing.”

“Look, I’ve already won in life man, I’ve already won in every single way. I have an amazing family, amazing friends, amazing work ethic and I’ve made further than I ever thought that I would and beyond.

“This is definitely a humbling experience. I’ll take it on the chin, get back in the gym and we can run it back because I think we put on an amazing show for the fans tonight.”
