Miller of San Francisco is 9-0 with four knockouts, and will be looking to add another belt to her collection that already includes the NABF Middleweight title that she won in her last bout on May 18th with a 7th round stoppage over Erin Toughill.
Miller, who was a 2012 Olympic alternate, will be looking for her 3rd victory of 2019, and with a win, Miller could be in line for a major bout as 2020 commences.
