Drake Loses $250,000 Bet as Jake Paul Triumphs Over Nate Diaz in Boxing Match
In an unforeseen turn of events, Drake has once again found himself on the unfortunate side of a significant wager, as Jake Paul emerged victorious in a cruiserweight boxing match against former UFC star Nate Diaz on Saturday night.
Before the bout, the Toronto rap icon publicly disclosed that he had placed a substantial $250,000 bet on Nate Diaz to secure a win against Jake Paul. The potential return on this wager was an impressive $1 million. In an Instagram story, Drake explained, “Jake is a dog, but I can never bet against a Diaz brother. That’s just how I was brought up.”
Regrettably for Drake, the outcome of the match did not align with his expectations. Nate Diaz, making his professional boxing debut, was unable to clinch the victory. The judges’ unanimous decision favored Jake Paul, with scores of 97-92, 98-91, and 98-91.
Jake Paul, reflecting on the match, acknowledged Diaz’s reputation for resilience. “He’s tough, that’s his renowned trait,” Paul commented. The YouTube personality turned boxer expressed his anticipation of winning the decision and highlighted the fact that he managed to knock Diaz down during the match.
