Dennis Andries MBE (born 5 November 1953) is a British former professional boxer who fought at light heavyweight.

Andries turned pro in 1978 and won the WBC Light Heavyweight Title in 1986 in a decision over American JB Williamson. He defended the title once against fellow Briton Tony Sibson before losing the belt in 1987 to Thomas Hearns. In 1989 he captured the Vacant WBC Light Heavyweight Title with a win over American Tony Willis, but lost the title in his first defence to Jeff Harding. In 1990 he won a rematch with Harding via 7th-round KO, recapturing the title. He made two further defences before in 1991 losing the title again to Harding, via majority decision, capping their trilogy. He eventually moved up to Cruiserweight, and never fought again for a major world title, retiring in 1996.

He was appointed MBE in the 1991 Birthday Honours.
