Andy Ologun (born June 12, 1983) is a Nigerian professional boxer, mixed martial artist, kickboxer and actor who has fought for K-1 and DREAM. He is the younger brother of Japanese TV personality, gaikokujin tarento and mixed martial artist, Bobby Ologun.
Ologun holds a notable K-1 kickboxing win over Takayuki Kohiruimaki and a win at Dynamite!! 2010 against former pro baseball Yokohama DeNA BayStars player turned mixed martial artist Katsuaki Furuki. Ologun most notably fought Thai kickboxer Buakaw Por. Pramuk at K-1 World MAX 2007 World Elite Showcase, a fight Ologun lost via decision. Andy was to have a rematch with Buakaw Por. Pramuk in 2010, but the fight was delayed due to scheduling conflicts.
Andy is also popular in Japan for his fashion modeling, having modeled in Japan for Comme des Garçons, Sean John, Puma, Dior and Michael Kors, as well as several appearances on Japanese television programs SASUKE and Ninja Warrior. He was also a film extra in the movies Babel, Catch a Fire and Inception. Ologun also made a cameo appearance in a Buju Banton music video. As of 2010 his current K-1 kickboxing record is 2-5.
Ologun turned to professional boxing in mid-2011. Fighting out of Hiranaka Boxing School Gym, he made his debut with a second-round technical knockout in a 163-pound bout at the Nippon Budokan in Tokyo.
