Yehuda Ben-Haim (29 September 1955 – 5 March 2012)[1] was an Israeli boxer. He competed in the light flyweight event at the 1984 Summer Olympics.[2] At the 1988 Summer Olympics he had a first-round bye. His second-round match, however, fell on Yom Kippur, and he refused to compete. As a result, Ben-Haim was disqualified and eliminated from the tournament.[3][4]
