Sale Price $180.00
Signed photo of the South African lightweight champ in boxing stance, inscribed to a fan (6½x8½). Extremely rare!
Inscribed photograph signed: "Best wishes/Norman/Herby Clarke" in blue ink. B/w, 6½x8½. Herby Clarke (b.1943) became the lightweight boxing champion of South Africa in 1966 in his title bout against Andries Steyn. He held the title for three subsequent years before losing it to Arnold Taylor in the 1969 title fight where Clarke was disqualified for biting. A rematch was set just a month after the disqualification, yet this time, Taylor beat Clarke fair and square by points. Following the loss of his title belt, Clarke's ambition declined, and after 1972 he retired from the sport. He finished with a record of 15-7-1 with 5 KO wins. Creased. Corners and edges worn. Lightly bowed. Ink notes in lower margin. Pencil notes on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
