Vicente Eduardo Mosquera Mena (born December 9, 1979 in Panama City, Panama) is a Panamanian professional boxer. He is a former World Boxing Association (WBA) super-featherweight champion.

On April 30, 2005 he defeated Yodsanan Sor Nanthachai (Yodsanan 3-K Battery) for the WBA world championship title, by a unanimous decision. The official scorers saw it 118-108, 116-111, 115-112. In the fight, Nanthachai was knocked down three times (in the first, third, and eleventh rounds). Mosquera also was knocked down in the third round.
