Sullivan (1858-1918), AKA "The Boston Strong Boy" and "The Great John L.", was an American heavyweight boxer. A blustery man of great strength, Sullivan was one of the most popular heavyweight boxers of his time. A bareknuckle boxer, Sullivan was also the first heavyweight champion of gloved boxing (1882-1892) and the last heavyweight champ under bareknuckle "London Prize Ring" rules. Sullivan's 75-round fight with Jake Kilrain in 1889 was the last heavyweight title fight under London Prize Ring rules; Sullivan won the fight with a knockout.
