Steve "Kid" Sullivan
(Stephen John Tricamo)

DIED September 6 1979
HEIGHT.. 5-5
WEIGHT 118-130 lbs
MANAGERS

Sullivan was one of those unfortunate fighters who has not received a lot of ink over the years; Perhaps, one reason was that for much of his career, he fought during the "No Decision" era where no one was the winner unless a knockout, stoppage or foul was scored; Nevertheless, he was a scrappy competitor who showed up - ready to battle; Remember, he defeated Johnny Dundee for the Junior Lightweight Championship of the World

During his career, Sullivan defeated such men as Dundee, Mike Ballerino, Vincent "Pepper" Martin, Charles "Dutch" Brandt, Sammy Sieger, Babe Herman [Sousa] and Georgie Balduc
