Pat O'Keefe (17 March 1883 – 1960) was an English boxer who became British champion at both welter and middleweight. His professional career spanned between 1903 and 1915, and in 1914 he made an unsuccessful bid at the European Heavyweight belt, losing to Georges Carpentier. Between 1907 and 1910 he left Britain and continued his boxing career firstly in the United States and then Australia.
