Louis Curtis turned professional as a boxer, but rather late in life, in 1984, when he was 29-years-old. He fought for a title six times, winning the USBA flyweight title in 1988, over Reginald Brown. He lost the other five title fights, as follows: 1987 against Kelvin Seabrooks for the USBA bantamweight title, 1987 against Gaby Canizales for the USBA bantamweight title, 1988 against Orlando Canizales for the USBA super-flyweight title, 1990 against Dave McAuley for the IBF flyweight title, and 1990 against Pedro José Feliciano for the USBA flyweight title. He later became a truck driver for Nabisco.
