Agostino Cardamone (born December 1, 1965 in Montoro Inferiore, Italy) is a former Italian pro boxer best known to win the European title at middleweight.


Southpaw Cardamone started his career in 1989 and won the Italian title against Silvio Branco in 1992. In 1993 he won the European crown, in 1995 he challenged big-punching Julian Jackson for the vacant WBC title and was knocked out by a devastating right hand in round 2.

The next year he was upset by the unknown Russian Alexander Zatsev (record 15-6) by KO for the vacant European title but won the rematch on points. He won the lightly regarded WBU title in 1998 against old foe Branco and successfully defended against him before getting KOd by Dutchman Raymond Joval and calling it quits.
