Drake, the Canadian rapper, has made a huge bet on the outcome of the upcoming boxing match between YouTube stars Jake Paul and Tommy Fury. The rapper stands to win a whopping £1.2m if his prediction is correct.
The fight, which is set to take place on February 20th, will be the first professional boxing match for both Paul and Fury. Paul is a YouTube star and social media influencer, while Fury is the younger brother of former heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.
Drake has placed a bet of £1.2m on the outcome of the fight, with the money going to the winner. If Paul wins, Drake will receive £1.2m, while if Fury wins, Drake will lose the same amount.
The bet has been made through a private bookmaker, and the odds of the fight are currently in Paul’s favour. Paul is the favourite to win the fight, with odds of 4/7, while Fury is the underdog with odds of 11/8.
The bet has been met with some criticism, with some people questioning why Drake would risk such a large amount of money on the outcome of a fight between two relatively unknown fighters. However, Drake has defended his decision, saying that he believes in Paul’s ability and that he is confident that he will win the fight.
The fight is set to be one of the most talked-about events of the year, and Drake’s bet has only added to the anticipation. It remains to be seen whether Drake’s prediction will be correct, but if it is, he stands to win a huge amount of money.
