Well now, what have we here? Looks as though you dinnay know much about the sweet science at all do ye?

John L. Sullivan is a retired boxer in the Golden Gecko pub in Klamath in Fallout 2.

Background

John Sullivan is an older man, though age did not slow him down one bit. He has a well built physique, with muscular arms and a height to match. The well groomed handlebar mustache, in gray, adds the final touch. He is a veteran of New Reno's boxing rings, who has moved to Klamath after ending his career, spending his time around the Golden Gecko, mingling with patrons. His Irish descent and accent can make him a little difficult to understand at times, though his pleasant personality makes it a non-issue.

Owing to his experience as a boxer, John has a keen eye for technique. He can judge a person's skills by the way they move and, if they prove to be a good sport, he'll even give them a few pointers in pugilism, the sweet science.
