Bohumil Němeček (2 January 1938 – 2 May 2010) was a Czechoslovak welterweightboxer. He first trained in ice hockey, and changed to boxing only in 1955, winning the national titles in 1959 and 1960, an Olympic gold medal in 1960, and a European title in 1967. He also competed at the 1964 and 1968 Olympics, but in both cases was eliminated in the second round. After retiring he worked as a boxing coach and a bus driver. His health rapidly deteriorated after a stroke in 2000, eventually resulting in death ten years later.
