Rufat Asadovich Riskiyev (Russian: Руфат Асадович Рискиев) (born October 2, 1949 in Akkurgan, Uzbek SSR) is a retired boxer, who represented the USSR at the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. There he won the silver medal in the middleweight division (– 75 kg). In the final he was defeated by United States-boxer Michael Spinks, after the referee stopped the contest in the third round.

Two years earlier, at the inaugural 1974 World Championships in Havana, Cuba, Riskiyev won the world title. He trained at the Dynamo sports society.
