Without doubt, one of boxings most underrated champions. Darius defended his WBO lightheavyweight title several times and was a 2 weight division champion, winning titles at both a light heavyweight and as a crusierweight. For years a bout with Roy Jones Jr. was discussed but never happened due to various reasons. Both parties pointed the fingers towards each other for this. It was said by Larry Merchant on air once during a Roy Jones fight that Roy had specifically asked him and Jim lampley not to mention Darius' name during the on-air broadcast. Darius did defeat several good fighters such as Montell Griffin, Graciano Rochigianni, and Drake Thadzi. He lost his last 2 fights to Julio Gonzalez and Fabrice Tiozzo.
