Carlo Saraudi (4 February 1899 – 22 November 1973)[1] was an Italian boxer. He competed at the 1924 Summer Olympics in the light heavyweight division. He lost the semifinal to Harry Mitchell,[2] but did not compete for the bronze medal because the Italian Boxing Federation withdrew its athletes in a protest against the tournaments earlier referee decisions; thus Saraudi ended up in the fourth place.[3][4]

In 1926–1932 he fought five bouts as a professional, winning three, losing one and drawing one.[5] He later trained his sons Giulio and Vittorio, who both became elite light-heavyweight boxers.[6][7]
