Imre Harangi (16 October 1913 – 4 February 1979) was a Hungarian amateur lightweight boxer. He placed second at the 1934 European Championships and won a gold medal at the 1936 Summer Olympics in a close final against Nikolai Stepulov. Harangi lost the first round and had his both eyes swollen and bleeding, yet he managed to outperform Stepulov in the remaining two rounds.[1][2]
