Lew Chester's record was published in the Everlast Boxing Record, 1926, 1927,and 1928 editions, and later in the 1943 edition of Nat Fleischer's All-Time Ring Record Book. The published record is demonstrably inaccurate and contains entries not yet verified, and which may not have occurred. These have been omitted from the linked record, which contains several fights that were not listed in the published record. The omitted fights are listed below.
- Knockout victories: Pat Barnetti, W ko 1; Eddie Jones, W ko 3; Eddie Hart, W ko 4; Freddie McCoy, W ko 1.
- No decision fights: Earl Fleming, 8 rounds; Howard Hall, 10 rounds, Babe McCorgary, 10 rounds. (The McCorgary fight occurs in one of three published records for McCorgary, but not in the other two.)
