Harry Hill

Harry Hill was a boxing promoter in the nineteenth century. He owned a dance hall and boxing emporium on Houston street in New York City. Hill once set up a match between John L. Sullivan and John Flood, a rugged street fighter who emerged from New York's Five Points section. To avoid local authorities, he arranged for the match to take place on a barge docked on the Hudson River near Yonkers.
