In the second Joe Louis/Billy Conn fight, there were quite a number of foreign dignitaries at ringside to watch the fight. Among them, so the narration goes was “Australia’s Herbert Evans.” I haven’t been able to find any “Herbert Evans” of any note that would be noteworthy to mention. Sorry, couldn’t quickly put my hands on a video of the fight that actually showed him. ETA: And if no such “Herbert Evans” shows up, it’s possible the narration was incorrect.
I wonder if it is a misprint for Herbert Evatt.
Thanks. That is almost certainly the case.
Yes, that was my first thought too. In 1946, Bert Evatt was Attorney-General and Minister for External Affairs in Australia in 1946.
