Belfast was the home of famous bareknuckle fighter John L. Sullivan. He trained here for his fight against World Champion Jake Kilrain. This was the most important fight in his career and ended up being a 75 round brawl. "The Great John L" is considered one of the pioneers of modern boxing. Today the Bare Knuckle Boxing Hall of Fame and Museum is located here.
