Freddie Norwood (born February 14, 1970 in St. Louis, Missouri) is a boxer in the lightweight division. Known as "Lil Hagler", Norwood defeated Antonio Cermeño to win the WBA Featherweight Title in 1998. He successfully defended his title eight times before losing his title by a controversial 11th-round TKO to Smoke Gainer. Among his notable defenses were a 9th-round KO over former WBC Featherweight Title holder Takashi Koshimoto, a unanimous decision victory over former WBO Featherweight Title holder Julio Pablo Chacón and former IBF and WBA Featherweight title holder Juan Manuel Márquez. After losing his title to Gainer, Norwood retired from boxing.

He starred in adult film movies after his comeback.
