Default Peter Jackson v.s John L Sullivan

If this match would've taken place, who would come up top?

I suspect that The Prince was alongside Corbett as the best heavyweight of that era. While John L. had managed to prevail over Kilrain under London Prize Ring Rules, Jackson would have taken him under Queensbury guidelines. That's no cinch, but Peter was taller, and with a longer reach than Sullivan. I think Jackson's patented one-two would have posed all sorts of problems for Sullivan.
