John L. Sullivan. Irish-American. Heavyweight Champion of the World, 1881-1892.

John Sullivan’s a true Irishman. He studied at the seminary but ended up being the last bareknuckle heavyweight champion of the world, taking the prize in 75 rounds in 1889.
I’m not Irish, but I do love the culture – their whiskey, their women, their fighting spirit.
