Its a very sad situation to report that Phillip Ndou was involved in a physical fight with Boxing Official this weekend.
You will remember that Phillip has been forced to retire from boxing back in 2014 due to a brain injury, allegedly suffered after his split decision loss to Isaac Hlatshwayo in May 2014, to continue fighting would risk his life seriously as he was diagnosed of a long-term brain injury. But after sometime he went back into boxing.
Now this time around, his sporting licence was withdrawn due to some medical reasons. Ntambi Ravele confirmed that “Phillip applied for a licence to fight and we sent him for medical checks and our doctors said we shouldn’t grant him the licence. The doctors gave us a report after Ndou’s last fight. He had taken serious contact and they said he shouldn’t fight again. Phillip attacked and assaulted our Provincial Manager Mr Archie Mingwa and 3 other officials”, and “Phillip Ndou’s licence was declined strictly on doctor’s advice after he underwent medical checks. We are shocked and disappointed by the actions of Phillip Ndou because he is one of our top boxers”- Boxing SA Chairperson Ntambi Ravele.
A case has been opened against him.
