Gerhardus Christian Coetzee (born 8 April 1955 in Boksburg), better known as Gerrie Coetzee, is a South African former boxer. He made history twice: he was the first boxer from the African continent ever to fight for, and win, a world heavyweight title.

His Afrikaans nickname was "Seer Handjies" or little sore hands, named so by fellow South African boxing great Kallie Knoetze.
