Robert Daniels (born August 30, 1968 in Miami, FL), is a professional boxer in the Cruiserweight division.

Daniels, known as "Preacherman," turned pro in 1984 and in 1989 he captured the vacant World Boxing Association (WBA) cruiserweight title by defeating a badly faded 36-year old Dwight Muhammad Qawi. He defended the title twice before losing the title to Bobby Czyz in 1991 in a close split decision.

He continued to fight as both a cruiserweight and heavyweight through 1997. In his highest profile fights as a heavyweight, he lost to Lawrence Clay-Bey and David Tua.

His professional record stands at 49 wins, 8 losses, 1 draw, and 41 wins coming by knockout.

Robert Daniels was managed by Michael Frost, the boxing manager and former marketing agent for Gary Shefield, Jeff Conine, Robb Nenn, Bret Barberie, and others. Now the president of P.A.A.S. Authentication Services Inc.
