Fred Kay

Fred Kay was a great boxer and a favorite with crowds at Sydney Stadium. He once advised fellow boxer, the great Jimmy Clabby, "son save your money for when you're old and grey". Rather prophetically, Jimmy replied, "I aint going to be old and grey"

Fred's record belies his ability, won 39 (KO 6) lost 20 (KO 6) with 3 draws, but he scored victories over some great boxers - including Jimmy Clabby and Fernand Quendreux

Fred was born in Melbourne in 1890 but I have no record of his passing.
