Multi-Grammy-winning Canadian rapper Aubrey ‘Drake’ Graham has lost $565,000 after betting on Tyson Fury to beat Oleksandr Usyk.

It is yet another big-money gambling loss for the ‘First Person Shooter’ crooner.

Before the fight, Drake revealed on Instagram that he had gambled $565,000 on Fury to win.

If Fury had won, he would have collected just over $1million.

Oleksandr Usyk defeated Tyson Fury in a split decision to become the undisputed Heavyweight champion of the world.

The fight was the first undisputed heavyweight fight in nearly 25 years in Saudi Arabia.

Two judges scored the fight in Usyk’s favour- 115-113 and 114-113 with the other giving it to Fury at 114-113.

The knockdown of Fury in the ninth round proved decisive. He is now a two-weight undisputed world champion.

In round nine, Fury was completely out off his feet and stumbled around the ring a Usyk went in search of the finishing shot.

The referee then called a knockdown, giving Fury a standing count with the Gypsy King slumped in the corner.

Usyk has now added Fury’s WBC title to his own WBA, IBF and WBO belts.

Drake previously lost a six-figure sum after Anthony Joshua’s knockout win over Francis Ngannou, and another $700,000 after Dricus Du Plessis beat Sean Strickland at UFC 297.
