Boxer Regis Prograis Comes Off World Title Win To Find His $1.2 Million Fight Check Bounced

On Nov.27, professional boxer Regis Prograsis became the WBC super lightweight world champion after knocking out Jose Zepeda in the 11th round of their title shot match. This win was a great comeback for Prograis, who, just three years ago, lost his junior welterweight world title to Josh Taylor in the U.K.

With his latest victory, the 33-year-old New Orleans native was set to take home a $1.2 million purse. According to Total Sportal, his winnings included $350k guaranteed and payouts from Pay-Per-View. The big payday was coming via the boxing promotion company MarvNation Promotions.

Since the fight took place on Saturday night, the new two-time world titleholder had to wait until the next business day to deposit the check. Anyone can assume that signing over a check for $1.2 million may take some time to clear, but for Prograis, the alert he got from his bank wasn’t so good.
