Reported as being the Tommy Sullivan of Brooklyn, NY. "He, himself, and some friends had been telling how bad a man he was and how quickly he would 'get' Hussey and the local boy was looking out for him... Sullivan has been in the ring with some of the best known fighters in the country during his long career as a fighter, and he said that none of them had a harder punch than Hussey." Monroe Monitor

"The one time invincible George Dixon succumbed to Tommy Sullivan, of Brooklyn, at Coney Island tonight. The end came as the men shaped up for the seventh round, when Tom O'Rourke admitted defeat for his man, and claiming his left arm was disabled, refused to permit him to continue. Dixon was getting all the worst of it. Sullivan was willing to mix it up on the slightest provocation and the consensus of opinion was that Dixon was well beaten." (Durango Democrat)
