Jyri Göran Kjäll (born 13 January 1969) is a Finnish former boxer who won the bronze medal in the light welterweight division at the 1992 Summer Olympics. A year later he captured the silver medal at the 1993 World Amateur Boxing Championships in Tampere, Finland.
Kjäll turned pro in 1994 and had limited success. Although he retired in 2002 with a career record with 23-1-0 with 18 KO's and fought frequently in the US, his career never built up momentum for a title shot. His lone defeat was a 1st-round TKO to future contender Juan Carlos Candelo. He is often considered one of the best Finnish boxers in the world.
