Lou Brouillard
(Lucien Pierre Brouillard)

BORN   May 23 1911, St. Eugene, Quebec, Canada
HEIGHT September 14, 1984, Taunton, Massachusetts
WEIGHT 144-170 lbs
MANAGERS Maurice Lemione, Johnny Buckley

Brouillard was short, sturdy and "as strong as a horse" - with a walloping punch to go along; Tough, durable and willing, Lou tore into his man to fight it out and usually emerged as the winner; He was a "handful" to cope with

Lou won 109 contests in all; At one point in his career, he sported a 72-5 record; His overall "Won-Lost" record is even more impressive considering that he kept fighting long past when he should have retired; He won just 10 of his last 27 fights

During his career, he won the Middleweight Championship of the World (as recognized by New York state), the NBA Middleweight Championship of the World, the Welterweight Championship of the World and the Light Heavyweight Championship of New England

Lou defeated such men as Mickey Walker, Bob Olin, Al Gainer, Ben Jeby, Jimmy McLarnin, Young Corbett III, "Young" Jack Thompson, Norman Conrad, Al McCoy, Ad Zachow, Adolph Heuser, Johnny Indrisano, Henry Firpo, Gustave Roth, Sammy "Kid" Slaughter, Bucky Lawless, Tait Littman, Johnny Rossi, Paul Pirrone, Al Mello and George "Wop" Manolian

Brouillard was inducted into the World Boxing Hall of Fame in 2000 and the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 2006
