Boston's charismatic John L. Sullivan (1858–1918), was perhaps the most celebrated boxer of the era whose inimitable talent made him a star on the fans and critics circuits. His public acclaim helped enhance more widespread acceptance of the sport and to establish American dominance over British fighters.
