Have you ever heard that if a fighter spends too much time in the ring being hit, fighting war after war, they tend to slip out of the game much sooner than those that fight smart and avoid punishment?

It’s been nearly three years now since we linked up with young and bullish LaDarius Miller inside of the Mayweather Boxing Club.

Having then traveled on bus from his hometown of Memphis, Tennessee, it was easy to spot that Miller had some good ol’ fashioned Southern attitude in him, but it was coupled with a modest and determined approach that led you to believe he would be someone to keep an eye on.
