Phillip Ndou (born 4 May 1977) is a South African former professional boxer and world title challenger. He is known for his punching power, having won his first 31 of 32 fights all but one by knockout or stoppage, and currently boasting an 81% knockout ratio. In 2004, Ndou was forced into early retirement when he collapsed after a loss to Isaac Hlatshwayo. A subsequent brain scan revealed an abnormality that would have endangered Ndou's health at the time if he continued to box. However, he returned to the ring in 2009.

Ndou has never won a major world title, but did win many regional and minor titles at featherweight and super featherweight. His most notable fight was an entertaining seven-round bout against WBC lightweight champion Floyd Mayweather, Jr. on 1 November 2003. His trainer and manager was Nick Durant.

Coincidentally, Ndou had competed in the same featherweight boxing tournament as Mayweather at the 1996 Summer Olympics. After defeating Casey Patton of Canada in a controversial referee stoppage, Ndou lost in the second round to the eventual gold medallist, Kamsing Somluck of Thailand. Earlier, Ndou won a silver medal at the 1995 All-Africa Games.

The former World Boxing Union super featherweight champion had not been in the ring since May 2004, when he lost to Isaac Hlatswayo, seven months after his first career loss to Floyd Mayweather, Jr. After losing to Lovemore Ndou on 11 July 2009, Phillip Ndou made a comeback defeating Bhekimpilo Mlilo by TKO in the 4th round of an 8 round contest. He then fought on 29 January 2011, defeating Welcome Ntshingila by unanimous decision in a ten-round bout.
