While still in his teens, Fred Bretonnel (whose exact date of birth is unknown) had won the Featherweight Championship of France, and held it until October 7, 1924, when he was defeated by Lucien Vinez.

Only 23-years-old, he hanged himself September 4, 1928, in Paris, France. According to a contemporary newspaper article, the cause was "family troubles."
