The ‘Drake Curse’ Strikes Again As Rapper Loses Six-Figure Sum After Oleksandr Usyk Beats Tyson Fury

Ben Horlock

The “Drake Curse” struck again on Saturday (May 18) as the Canadian rapper lost a reported $565,000 after Oleksandr Usyk beat Tyson Fury. 

Drake wagered the six-figure sum on Fury to get the better of Usyk in the heavyweight boxing clash in Saudi Arabia. However, “The Cat” won by split decision to become the first undisputed champion in 25 years.

God’s Plan certainly didn’t go in favor of Drake. He was set to land a cool $1Million if the “Gypsy King” prevailed against the Ukrainian star.

Drake’s sports bets have been indifferent of late. He lost out big time in March when Anthony Joshua defeated former UFC star Francis Ngannou.

Nonetheless, he has some sizable casino wins he can still boast of. Roulette tends to be Drake’s preferred casino game. The Toronto-born star made over $12m on a single roulette spin a few years back.

Drake Curse

The “Drake Curse” has been part of internet and social media culture for over ten years now. Generally, if Drake is photographed with a sports star prior to a match of big event, that athlete goes on to lose.

Nonetheless, some have broken the curse but he will always be renowned for being a bad luck charm. This was very much the case again for Oleksandr Usyk vs Tyson Fury.

Usyk is now the undisputed heavyweight boxing champion of the world. At the time of publication, Drake may be able to recoup his losses with talk of a re-match on the table.

The rapper places all of his bets with Stake.com, with whom he has a partnership. If a re-match is confirmed, expect him to wager at least another six figures with the crypto casino firm on the outcome.
