According to an "Oddities of the Sports World" newspaper column of Sept. 23, 1931, Lou Brouillard started as a right-handed boxer. Early on, however, he broke some rib bones on his right side, hampering his ability to hit with his right hand. He therefore converted to a southpaw.


Bob Yalen has examined the scrapbooks of Lou Brouillard. The following list consists of fights mentioned in the scrapbooks, but which have not yet been verified from newspapers, and therefore are not yet included in his BoxRec record. Many of Brouillard's early bouts occurred in smaller cities and some or all of these unverified fights may yet be discovered.
