I'd say that judges fixing fights is a little different from fighters fixing fights and I'd guess that the later is probably pretty rare, certainly in title fights
I've watched Lulu Perez/Willie Pep a number of times, and buying that match as being on the level is a lot for me to swallow. Once again though, that was not a title match.
