If you ever see me back in Springfield, you'll know I screwed up bad!

He was re-released as a premium character after the event, however his payout didn't change to premium rate until the Level 38 update.

About[edit | edit source]

Drederick Tatum is a former boxer of Springfield. He seems to have quit boxing. He used to be known to have a bad temper since he was put under arrest because of pushing his mother down the stairs, but now he can control his actions. Drederick Tatum was a former Olympic Gold medallist, first became World Heavyweight Champion after defeating Watson in the heavily promoted "Bout to Knock the Other Guy Out!" He grew up in Springfield, recalling that that town was a dump (since he once said this: "If you ever see me there again you'll know I really [bleeped]-up bad"). He later served time in prison after pushing his mother down the stairs. While serving time in Jail, he was apparently intimidating to the other prisoners and guards, as evidenced by the fact that he managed to quell a prison riot simply by telling them to say "Hey guys, come on! Shut up!" without even leaving his cell. In a Parole hearing, he admits he has regrets about pushing his mother down the stairs, and if he had an opportunity to go back in time, he'd "certainly reconsider it."
