Fans panic over alleged eye injury of Tommy Fury after fighting with Jake Paul

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Fans panic over alleged eye injury of Tommy Fury after fighting with Jake Paul.

Jake Paul joked he was cursed by Drake betting $400k on him to beat Tommy Fury in their boxing match on Sunday after his defeat on points to the Brit in Saudi Arabia.

The Canadian rapper would have pocketed a stunning $1.2million if Paul had done the business in the ring, but he lost on points against Fury.

Sports journalist Josh Bunting called the referee “absolutely mental” and “insane”, while MMA Fighting news editor Damon Martin said the referee wanted to be “part of the show”.

News Corp journalist Jamie Pandaram called the referee “rubbish”.

Paul’s reputation has been put to the sword on social media after the fact, with many people noting his previous undefeated record came against part-time fighters and other content creators, rather than full-time professionals.

Drake shared the details of his big-money bet on social media earlier on Sunday with the fight only hours away.

Drake's gambling selections were once something he was mocked for - he picked so many losers that fans would joke about the 'Drake curse'.

In recent times, he appeared to have turned a corner after he backed Argentina to win the World Cup final against France - although his bet didn't win because the game was won on penalties - and for the Kansas City Chiefs to win the Super Bowl earlier in February.

But now, after Paul's defeat, many will wonder if the Drake curse has returned. 

The 36-year-old won just one of his seven Super Bowl bets as the Kansas City Chiefs clinched their second Lombardi in four seasons, and yet still made a profit.

He wagered a total of $965k on the bets, and won $1.477m, making an overall profit of $512k.

Last month, the 'Laugh Now Cry Later' artist netted a $2m payout by placing a $1m winning bet on the Chiefs to beat the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Championship. In December, Drake bet $1m on Argentina to beat France in regulation in the World Cup final. 

Unfortunately for him, Lionel Messi & Co. beat the French in a dramatic shootout.

Additionally, in November, he threw down $2m worth of Canadian dollars for Israel Adesanya to win UFC 281 over Alex Pereira, who won in the fifth round by knockout.

Tyson Fury also placed a sizable wager on his brother to instead do the business vs. Paul. 

'I've got 100 racks on it for an inside-the-distance stoppage, so if he loses, then I'll lose 100 bags as well. I've got him at 3/1,' The Gypsy King told iFL TV.

“F**k. This is Drake’s fault,” Paul said in a sarcastic tone after hearing about the bet in the post-fight press conference. “Drake, bro, why did you do this to me?”

Paul then went on to apologise for failing the rapper: “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.”

According to The Daily Mail, the “Honestly, Nevermind” rapper has won just one of his seven Super Bowl bets.

Paul’s loss, the first of his pro career, puts him at a 6-1 record. The 23-year-old Fury, meanwhile, continues to build his pro resume as he follows in the footsteps of his older half-brother, legendary heavyweight boxer Tyson Fury.

Paul said following the bout the two will face each other again. The fight had a rematch clause if Fury won.

“Sorry, Drake,” Paul said. “I’ll get that W in the rematch.” Sportswriter Zain Bando said he was “glad the Jake Paul hype train has died”.

Former professional boxer and pundit Carl Froch was scathing, saying “(Paul) can’t call himself a professional boxer.”

“He’s bringing discredit and disgust to the world of professional boxing,” Froch said.

“He wasn’t really in the fight, let’s be honest,” he said.

Journalist Phillip O’Connor asked on Twitter: “Has anyone informed Jake Paul that there’s a punch in boxing called ‘the jab’ which is surprisingly useful?”
