César Andres Villaraga (born September 22, 1985[1]) is a Colombian amateur boxer at lightweight best known for winning the South American Games in 2010 and qualifying for the 2012 Olympics.

At the 2010 South American Games he made good use of home advantage to beat Hector Manzanilla and Eric Bandega before defeating the future World Champion Everton Lopes. He has yet to repeat that success. At the 2010 Central American and Caribbean Games he won silver.

At the 2011 Pan American Games he lost his very first bout against Angel Suarez. At the 2011 World Amateur Boxing Championships he again lost in the first round to Javkhlan Bariadi.

At the Olympic qualifier he won two fights to qualify,[citation needed] then lost to Roniel Iglesias at the 2012 Olympics.[2]
