Artur "Art" Binkowski (Polish pronunciation: [ˈartur biŋˈkɔfskʲi]; born February 19, 1975 in Bielawa) is a Polish-born Canadian heavyweight boxer who competed for his adoptive country Canada at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia.
Binkowski came to Canada from Poland at the age of 13. He studied psychology at the University of Waterloo.
In 2005 Binkowski lost to a lightly regarded countryman Patrice L'Heureux. Although Binkowski sported the better record, he came in as an underdog against hard-hitting American amateur star Rafael Butler on ShoBox in April 2007. He hit the deck three times in the first round but scored a stunning come-from-behind TKO in the final round of their bout.
Binkowski was crushed in a 2nd round TKO loss to Mike Mollo in October 2007.
