Corn ready to take world title

Leader Sports Editor

Boxer J. J. Corn has already made a name for himself in the world of boxing, but on Saturday he looks to cement his standing as one of the best boxers in the world. Corn will face Germany's Armand Krajnc who is undefeated at 22-0 in Krajnc's home of Lubeck, Germany for the WBO World Middleweight Title.

"I've been boxing for 14 years now," said Corn. "I've dreamed of fighting for a world championship, and now I get to."

Corn figures his big shot came when he fought for the IBF title and probably got noticed at that fight.
