Diosdado "Dodie Boy" Peñalosa (born November 19, 1962, San Carlos City, Negros Occidental Philippines) is a retired Filipino boxer and a former IBF champion in the light flyweight and flyweight classes.
Peñalosa won the Philippine lightweight title on November 26, 1982 by a 12th round stoppage against Romy Austria. He defended it against Alfredo Guanzon on January 30, 1983 although the bout ended in a no-contest for unknown reasons.
In 1983, he became the first IBF light flyweight champion with a technical knockout win over Satoshi Shingaki who would later become the inaugural IBF bantamweight champion. He defended the title three times before vacating the belt. In 1986, he moved up to challenge WBA Flyweight Title holder Hilario Zapata but lost.
Peñalosa later captured the IBF Flyweight Title the following year with a knockout win over Hi Sup Shin. He lost the belt in his first defense to Chang-Ho Choi. In 1989, he would get another shot at the IBF Flyweight Title against Dave McAuley, but lost a split decision. He retired in 1995.
Together on April 19, 2009, the team defeated Raul Martinez in Donaire's third title defense of his IBF Flyweight championship, a belt he once held in 1987.
