On Nov. 27, professional boxer Regis Prograis 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 $350,000 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.
