Nate Miller (born August 3, 1963 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) was a professional boxer in the Cruiserweight (190 lb) division.

He turned pro in 1986 and in 1994 landed a shot at IBF Cruiserweight Title holder Alfred Cole, but lost a decision. In 1995 he scored a KO victory over Orlin Norris to win the WBA Cruiserweight Title,[1] and defended the title four times before losing the belt to Fabrice Tiozzo in 1997. He retired in 2001 after losses to Norris, Thomas Hearns, and Vincenzo Rossitto.
