McCann, 32, won with a stunning knockout elbow over Hannah Goldy.

Meanwhile, Pimblett, 27, dispatched Jordan Leavitt at a raucous O2 Arena.

The win earned Drake a $3.7 million (£3.1 million) payout on top of his ($2.3 million) £2 million.

And the Grammy-winning musician took to his Instagram story to flaunt his winnings.

Tagging crypto betting platform Stake, he captioned his punter’s post “A scousers parlay”.

In a separate story, Drake promised to buy Rolex watches for both Pimblett and McCann.

The music star is set to use his winnings to gift the pair new luxury watches after they helped him close the bet.

Drake wrote on his account: “Rollies for Meatball and the Baddy.”


Toronto native Drake, who recently enjoyed a luxurious vacation in St. Tropez is no stranger to high-stakes betting — especially the UFC.

Earlier this month, he bet $1 million (£833,000) on Israel Adesanya to beat Jared Cannonier at UFC 276 in Las Vegas.

Adesanya won the match and victories for Pimblett and McCann mean the famous ‘Drake Curse’ could finally be over.

Drizzy has been well known for publicly endorsing sports stars, only to lose in his next appearance.

Justin Gaethje fell victim to this after Drake put £346k on him to beat Charles Oliveira in May – and then lost.

Jorge Masvidal was also hit in March when Drake bet a whopping $275,000 (£229,000) on him to win his grudge match with Colby Covington, who also lost.
