Hiroshi Kobayashi, (小林 弘 born 23 August 1944 in Gunma, Japan), is a former professional boxer who held the world junior lightweight championship.

He was stripped of his WBA title after failing to fight Rene Barrientos. He defended the title six times before losing the belt to Alfredo Marcano in 1971. He retired later in the year after losing by knockout in the 7th round against Roberto Durán in Panama. Offered here is a signed personalized index card of Hiroshi Kobayashi.
