Daniel Jiménez Román (born November 21, 1969 in Camuy, Puerto Rico) is a former Puerto Rican bantamweight boxer. He is best known for having won the WBO title as a pro.


Jimenez, known as "La Cobra", turned pro in 1988, losing his first fight to Wilfredo Vargas. In 1993 he captured the WBO super bantamweight title with a decision win over Duke McKenzie and defended it four times before losing it to Marco Antonio Barrera in 1995. He moved down in weight after the loss and defeated WBO bantamweight title holder Alfred Kotey by decision. He defended the belt once before losing it to Robbie Regan the following year. He retired in 2002 after several losses late in his career.
