A Purse without a Fight: In 1998, Roy Jones Jr. considered jumping to the heavyweight division, so the WBC vacated his Light Heavyweight title. Graciano Rocchigiani won the vacated title in a split decision against Michael Nunn. Meanwhile, Roy Jones Jr. decides to stay a light heavyweight, so the WBC takes Rocchigiani's title and gives it back to Jones Jr. Rocchigiani sues the WBC, saying he was cheated of his title. The result? A $30 Million payday for Rocchigiani via a fight in the courtroom, and not the ring.
