Mzansi Magic is excited to present Time Bomb – The Incredible Story of Phillip Ndou, a six-part docu-drama that promises to be so much more than just a sports documentary. It is a journey through time, tracing the life and career of one of South Africa's greatest boxing talents, Phillip Ndou.

From the very beginning, Ndou’s life was set to be extraordinary. Born on the side of a road, set the pace for a life where the odds were constantly stacked against him. His fight to the top of the boxing world, and notably his bout against the legendary Floyd Mayweather, is just part of the intricate fabric of his life.

“Behind every champion, there is a human story and as a channel it is important for us to celebrate our heroes and inspire generations to follow,” says Shirley Adonisi, director of local entertainment channels.

The episodes delve deep, not just into the high adrenaline world of boxing, but more into Ndou's personal battles, dreams, regrets, and his mission to inspire the next generation of sports enthusiasts in Africa. This is not just the story of a sportsman. It's the journey of a son, a father, a partner, and above all, a champion. Timebomb – Phillip Ndou paints an intimate portrait of his life's highs and lows.
