If your surname is one of the above check web site via the attached link.
Here is an example. Not sure how factual this is but frankly its a bit of a laugh.
One extract from the site follows.

The first heavy weight boxing champion of the world was a Sullivan.
John Lawrence Sullivan (1858 - 1918) was born in the Roxbury section of Boston, the son of a County Kerry immigrant. His nickname was "The Boston Strongboy" because of his mighty punch and legendary stamina. The last bare-knuckled heavy weight boxing championship bout was held in 1889 between Sullivan and Jake Kilrain. The fight started at 10:30 in the morning and lasted for 75 rounds, when Sullivan finally knocked out his worthy opponent. Sullivan died at the age of 59 and is buried in Boston.
