Pedro Nolasco (February 2, 1962 – September 15, 1995) was a Dominican boxer, who won the bronze medal in the men's bantamweight category at the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles, United States.

This was the first Olympic medal of the Dominican Republic. A year earlier he won a silver at the 1983 Pan American Games. He was born in La Romana, Dominican Republic.

Nolasco turned pro in 1986 and had limited success, possibly a result of having moved up the professional ladder too quickly. In 1987 he dropped a pair of fights to future champion Tony Lopez. Later in the year he lost a decision to future champ Victor Callejas. In 1989 he took on Maurizio Stecca for the newly created WBO Featherweight Title, but lost in a 6th-round TKO.
