LADARIUS "Memphis" MILLER
20 (6 KO) - 1 - 0
Las Vegas, NV
Ladarius “Memphis” Miller joined Mayweather Promotions in 2014 and is the epitome of a rising star and future champion. Born out of the sometimes-mean streets of Memphis, this slick southpaw learned at a young age that any victory in life must be paid for in advance. Miller’s boxing career would begin at the ripe age of 10 when his father decided that his son would not become a product of his menacing environment. Miller displayed an innate interest in boxing and would often watch bouts on television, prompting his father to take him to a local gym where he quickly developed a passion for pugilism.
As an amateur fighter, Miller compiled an illustrious 81-17 record while gleaning insights from outside the ring that have made him the professional fighter he is today. He believes staying focused and surrounding oneself with positive people to be intangible boxing traits compulsory in any fighter’s quest for supremacy in a highly competitive sport. These intangibles, in tandem with Miller’s raw talent, quickly grabbed the attention of Floyd Mayweather Jr., Leonard Ellerbe, and Dejuan Blake after watching Miller train at the Mayweather Boxing Club in Las Vegas. They offered to sign the young prizefighter and Miller began his professional career on February 28, 2014 with a UD against Douglas Rosales on Showtime’s telecast ShoBox: The New Generation.
