Drake suffered another big-money gambling loss on Saturday night after the rapper bet $565,000 on Tyson Fury to beat Oleksandr Usyk.

The Ukrainian beat Fury by split decision in Saudi Arabia to become the first undisputed heavyweight boxing champion in 24 years.

Usyk added Fury’s WBC title to his own WBA, IBF and WBO belts with a spectacular late rally highlighted by a ninth-round knockdown in a back-and-forth bout between two previously unbeaten heavyweight champs.

But it was bad news for Drake, who earlier on Saturday took to Instagram to show he had gambled $565,000 on Fury to prevail. If Fury had won, Drake would have collected just over $1million.

Fans on social media regularly joke that Drake is ‘cursed’ having previously lost a six-figure sum after Anthony Joshua‘s knockout win over Francis Ngannou, and another $700,000 after Dricus Du Plessis beat Sean Strickland at UFC 297.

He also lost $550,000 when Israel Adesanya suffered a shock defeat against Strickland in the octagon and previously bet $890,000 on Logan Paul to beat Dillon Danis in the boxing ring.
