Jake Paul says Drake is to blame for his loss against Tommy Fury

Jake Paul says Drake is to blame for his loss against Tommy Fury.

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. 

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.” 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.

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?”

“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.”
