Nigerian Afrobeats star, Davido has mocked Canadian rapper, Drake, after he lost a £478,000 bet on Francis Ngannou defeating Anthony Joshua in a heavyweight boxing bout on Saturday.

Drake had taken to his Instagram page to share a slip of the bet he placed on the bout.

Drake was in line for a huge payday of over £1million.

However, he lost the bet as Joshua knocked out Ngannou and won the bout in just two rounds.

Joshua delivered a devastating knockout on Ngannou that sent the former UFC champion crashing to the surface in brutal fashion and later receiving medical care in the ring before getting to his feet.

In January, Drake lost over half-a-million pounds when he backed Sean Strickland to defend his UFC middleweight championship against Dricus Du Plessis.

The 37-year-old also lost £430,000 when Israel Adesanya suffered a shock defeat against Strickland in the octagon and previously bet £700,000 on Logan Paul to beat Dillon Danis in the boxing ring.

Taking to the comment section, Davido mocked the OVO boss for his loss.

He wrote in Pidgin, “Ur ticket don cut .”

Before the fight, Davido had declared that he was supporting Anthony Joshua because of his Nigerian heritage.

He wrote on his X handle: “As a Nigerian of course I want AJ to win … but e get one soft spirit wey this Francis get and plus his story again … u go come Dey use style gbadun him way!! But gotta stick with the Homeland .”
