Fist for Fight is a demo album by Swedish power metal band Sabaton. It is actually a compilation of two demo recordings made between 1999 and 2000 that the band later self-released on one disc. In 2001 it was re-released as a digipak under license by the Italian record label Underground Symphony. Now out of print with no plans to be re-issued separately, it has been included as a bonus disc on the belatedly-released Metalizer album in 2007, with the addition of a previously unreleased track.
The album artwork is by long-time Manowar collaborator Ken Kelly.
