Fred Drummond
(Frederick Edgar Drummond)

BORN   Apr-June 1874; Cardigan Road, Old Ford, London, England
DIED 1953; Lambeth, London, England
WEIGHT Middleweight-Heavyweight

Drummond was tough and game and had some pop in his punches; He had a disabled foot that caused him to drag it, thus making him rather slow; Consequently, he disliked training; He seemed to struggle against lighter, speedier foes, due mainly to his own lack of speed; He was a brother of Arthur "Spoff" Drummond, also a boxer
 
During his career, he defeated such men as Frank Craig, Denis Haugh, George Marchant, Jim Maher, "Private" William Smith, Harry Shearing, Young Johnson, Harry Croxon and George West
