YouTube star Jake Paul, who turned professional boxer, lost first fight of his pro career on Sunday night losing a split decision to Tommy Fury. Now Paul has apologised to Canadian rapper Aubrey Drake Graham who lost $400,000 betting on his fight with Tommy Fury. Drake would have seen him earn upwards of $1.4million if successful.
Responding to Drake’s huge loss when asked if he was impacted by the infamous ‘Drake curse’, Paul joked: “F**k this is Drakes fault.

“Drake, why’d you do this to me?”
He then added: “Nah nah, it’s my fault. $400,000 is nothing to him, so.
“He’s won a lot more money betting on me before so he’s probably about even now.
“Sorry Drake, I’m going to get that W in the rematch.”
Paul (6-1) knocked down Fury with a short left hand early in the final round of their cruiserweight bout, but the younger half-brother of heavyweight champion Tyson Fury controlled long stretches of the eight-round meeting at Diriyah Arena.
“I’ve already won every single way in life,” Paul said. “I made it farther than I ever thought I would, and beyond. This is a humbling experience. I’ll take it on the chin and come back.”
