How come the Million Dollar Championship is not mentioned here? If Ted Dibiase just wore the belt and claimed to be the Million Dollar CHampion and never defended it what-so-ever, I would understand no mention, but the fact that he had defended it on a few occasions, and lost it to Virgil, then regained it again suggests that not only did the Championship exist, it has a history.

1937 world light heavyweight championship

Hugh Nichols has two potential dates listed for him winning the championship. It loooks like April 28, 1937 might be the real one as he was referred to as champion in Lima, Ohio, on May 11, 1937. The belt was not on the line, though, when he beat Tiger Moore.
