Although Sullivan is generally considered mainly by Americans to have been world heavyweight champion, most boxing historians regard him as a U.S. champion only. His only international match of consequence was with the English pugilist Charley Mitchell at Chantilly, Oise, Fr., March 10, 1888; it ended as a draw after 39 rounds.
