    Nearly all the current information for this clip is incorrect........

    "Rocky Bennell" in text and tags should read Hockey Bennell.

    The current given location of "White Hart stadium, London" should read Leichhardt Stadium, Sydney, Australia.

    The issue date is also incorrect, as this fight actually took place on 25 September 1941, (confirmed by newspaper reports I've seen from the following day, and by boxing records websites).

    The referee is Les Pearson.
