Drake has revealed his supporter for tonight's bout between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk, in which the Canadian musician is once again risking a large sum of money.

Fury, known as Gyspy King will face Usyk tonight in an undisputed heavy-weight contest of the world.

The fight which will take place in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia will see the contest winner crowned the undisputed heavyweight of the world.

Drake, who has always bet on various sports, has taken a chance by placing a bet on the bout taking place this evening.

Drake’s bet

It is not the first time Canadian rapper Drake has placed a bet on a big fight. A few months ago, he placed a huge bet on the fight between Antony Joshua and Ngannou which he lost.

Not only do individuals in the boxing world contribute their two cents, but Drake has once again elevated that expression to entirely new heights.

Social media users frequently make fun of Drake for being "cursed" because he lost £551,000 following Dricus Du Plessis' victory over Sean Strickland at UFC 297 and a six-figure sum following Anthony Joshua's knockout victory over Francis Ngannou.

Before the historic heavyweight fight, Drake informed his followers on Instagram about who he would support in Riyadh and how much money he may win.

According to Daily Mail, Drake disclosed to his 146 million followers that he has invested a whooping £462,396 ($565,000) on 'The Gipsy King' Fury, with the potential to win an incredible £789,608 ($1m).
