Fred Davis, MBE (13 August 1913, Chesterfield, Derbyshire – 16 April 1998, Denbighshire) was an English professional player of snooker and English billiards, and was one of the most popular personalities in the game.

Davis was originally a billiards player, turning professional in 1929. His first professional snooker match was in 1937.

He was the younger brother (by twelve years) of Joe Davis, who dominated snooker from 1927 to 1946; they are no relation to later champion Steve Davis. Joe retired from the World Snooker Championship after his 1946 victory, leaving the way open for Fred to win three times, in 1948, 1949 and 1951. The only time they met in the World Championship final was in 1940, when Joe beat Fred 37-36. Following a disagreement between some of the players and the governing body Davis played in an alternative tournament — the World Matchplay — which he won on five consecutive occasions, 1952–1956. Davis retired in 1957 leaving the path clear for his rival John Pulman. When the official World Championship was resumed in 1964 on a challenge basis, Davis came out of retirement but had lost his edge and was defeated on each occasion by Pulman, in 1964, 1965 and 1966.
