Boxing ATLANTIC CITY — Victory is the aim but not ; the sole objective tonight for World Boxing Council heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis. Total : destruction of Shannon Briggs is the objective; j Lewis's first order of business will be simply to ] retain the WBC title against Briggs at the Atlantic City Convention Hall. But few expect that to be • much of a challenge, which is why the champion ! has been installed as a 12-1 favorite and why one • pundit has already suggested that James J. Jef- ! fries's record for the fastest knockout in a heavy-! weight title fight (55 seconds to stop Jack ' Finnegan on April 6,1900) may be in jeopardy. : SPORTS HOTLIIME PHONE NUMBERS OF INTEREST ', Brown Mackie athletic department 785-825-5422, i Bethany athletic department 785-227-3311 > Fort Hays Stale athletic department 786-628-4050 Heart of America Sports Camps 785-827-6229 Heartland Park Topeka ticket office 785-862-7223 Kansas City Chiefs ticket office 816-924-9400' Kansas City Royals ticket office 800-676-9257.
