Ebrahim Javadipour (Persian: ابراهيم جوادی پور‎‎, born 28 July 1943) is a retired Iranian freestyle wrestler. He won a world title in 1969, 1970, 1971 and 1973 and a gold medal at the Asian Games in 1970 and 1974, but placed third at the 1972 Olympics. He is listed in the FILA wrestling hall of fame.

Javadi was born in Qazvin, but spent a few of his early years in Tehran, where his father worked for the Ministry of Labor. Javadi was an active child and tried various sports, eventually choosing wrestling because it fitted best to his relatively small body size.
