Lucien Pierre Brouillard, better known as Lou Brouillard, (born May 23, 1911 in Saint-Eugène-d'Argentenay, Quebec and died September 14, 1984), was a professional boxer in the welterweight (147lb) division.

Brouillard turned pro in 1928 and in 1933 won the NYSAC World Middleweight Title by defeating Ben Jeby by KO. He lost the title in his first defense against Vince Dundee later that year.

According to an "Oddities of the Sports World" newspaper column of Sept. 23, 1931, 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.
