Antoni "Toni" Besolí Cervellera (born 19 May 1976 in Andorra la Vella) is an Andorran judoka, who competed in the men's middleweight category.[1]

Besoli qualified as a lone judoka for the Andorran squad in the men's middleweight class (90 kg) at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, by granting a tripartite invitation from the International Judo Federation.[2] He fell in a bodily-crushing ippon defeat to Dominican Republic's two-time Olympian Vicbart Geraldino just forty-seven seconds into their opening match.[3][4]
