'Time Bomb' to detonate in France

Philip "Time Bomb" Ndou is set to explode at the Palais des Sport in Saint-Quentin, Aisne, France on February 14.

That is where Ndou, the potent puncher who knocked out 30 of his 31 victims four years ago, will dust of the cobwebs against Rachid Drilzane.

Their fight will be contested in the junior welterweight division over eight rounds. Ndou will be making a comeback after hanging up his gloves in 2004 due to a cyst on his brain.

His last fight was on May 22 2004 for the South African lightweight belt when he was outpointed by Isaac Hlatswayo.

Drilzane is no-name fighter, who has not won silverware as a professional. He has won 15 of his 21 fights.

Ndou's backers explained that they just could not throw their charge into the deep end in his comeback bout. That makes a lot of sense.

Born in May 4, 1977 in Thohoyandou, Ndou collapsed after his loss to Hlatswayo. A brain scan revealed an abnormality that would endanger his health if he continued to box.

Ndou has never won a world title but he has won many minor title fights at featherweight and super featherweight divisions. His most notable fight was an entertaining seven-round bout against WBC lightweight champion Floyd Mayweather Junior.

Ndou's clash will be the undercard to the IBF featherweight title bout between Mexican Cristobal Cruz and Frenchman Cyril Thomas.
