Anton Ante Josipović (born 22 October 1961 in Banja Luka, SR Bosnia and Herzegovina, SFR Yugoslavia) is a former Croatian boxer from Bosnia and Herzegovina (then part of Yugoslavia). He won the light heavyweight gold medal at the 1984 Summer Olympics.
Josipović was awarded an Olympic gold medal by default after American Evander Holyfield, was disqualified in the semi-finals for knocking out New Zealander Kevin Barry after the match had been stopped. During the medal ceremony Josipović pulled Holyfield to the top of the podium to join him.
