Simon Kean (born January 11, 1989) from Trois-Rivières, Quebec is a Canadian boxer that qualified for the 2012 Olympics along with Custio Clayton.[1]

Simon was a semi-finalist and 3rd-place finisher at super heavyweight at the 2012 American Boxing Olympic Qualification Tournament. Three spots were available for qualification for super heavyweight and Simon qualified over the other semi-finalist since his loss was a KO by the eventual winner Ítalo Perea.[2] Qualification being dependent on how the opponent performed in later rounds was controversial and will not be used in future Olympics.[3]

At the 2012 Olympics he edged out Tony Yoka but lost to Ivan Dychko.

He participated at the 2015 Pan American Games in Toronto. He lost in the quarter-final against American Cam F. Awesome.[4]

He had an amateur record of 54-15.[5]
