Freddie Little (born 1936-04-25 in Picayune, MS, is a former American light middleweight.
Little turned pro in 1957 and challenged for the World, WBC, and WBA light middleweight title against Ki-Soo Kim, but lost by split decision in 1967.
In 1968 he challenged for the belt against Sandro Mazzinghi. The bout stopped with Mazzinghi bleeding from cuts over both eyes. The ringside officials ruled a "No-Contest", though under normal circumstances Little would have won by "TKO 8".
In 1969 Little captured the vacant title by decisioning Stanley Hayward. He defended the belt twice before losing it to Carmelo Bossi in 1970 by decision. He retired in 1972.
