Drake loses massive bet on Francis Ngannou to beat Anthony Joshua as fans predicted he ‘cursed’ him


Drake concerned Francis Ngannou fans by placing a huge bet on him to beat Anthony Joshua.

The heavyweights clashed ‘Knockout Chaos’ on Friday night in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia – and indeed, it was AJ who emerged victorious by KO.

Drake was always going to be a keen observer.

The superstar recording artist is known to be a big combat sports fan.

And he regularly places massive bets on sporting events including mega fights.

On Friday, Drake staked $615,000 (£477,000) on Ngannou to beat Joshua.

If the bet had won, it would have paid out $1.9million (£1.5million).

However, this of course was not the face.

Even before the fight, many Ngannou fans are not happy to hear about this bet.

Drake’s track record for sports betting is not great to say the least.

He has even been accused of ‘cursing’ athletes and teams after being pictured with them.

One fan reacted to his bet on Ngannou by saying: “Damn. That means Ngannou is gonna lose.”

While a second commented: “Omg the Drake cruse.”

A third boxing fan added: “Bet on AJ everyone.”

And another wrote: “Can this dude stop betting on the same people I bet on. Bro is messing up my picks with that Drake betting curse lol.”

In the end, the fans were proved correct.
