St. Johnbsury’s World Welterweight Champ - Christopher Ryan

Lucien P. “Lou” Brouillard was born on May 23, 1911 in Saint-Eugène-de-Guigues, P.Q., Canada. His parents moved shortly thereafter to St. Johnsbury where young Lou Brouillard spent the early years of his boyhood. By his late teens, the family lived in Norwich, Conn. and Lou Brouillard was on his meteoric ascent to the heights of professional boxing. Brouillard’s first professional fight occurred on June 28, 1928 at Elks Park in Willimantic, Conn. – a first round knockout of Billy Krake. Three years hence, Lou Brouillard sported a 62-7 record when he stepped into the ring against Young Jack Thompson for the world welterweight title fight at Boston Garden on Fri. Oct. 23, 1931. Brouillard took a 15 round unanimous decision to wrest the world welterweight title from Thompson (“Lou Brouillard New Champion Whips Jack Thompson for World Title Capacity Crowd of 18,000 Sees Defender Dropped Twice,” The Boston Globe, Sat. Oct. 24, 1931, at p. 1; “Lou Brouillard, World Welter Champ, a St. Johnsbury Boy,” The Burlington Free Press, Wed. Oct. 28, 1931, at p. 11).
