Born August 25, 1977 in Columbia, SC. 

He began boxing at the age of 8 and registered a 105-12 amateur record before turning pro in 1996. Corrales compiled a 28-0 record before stopping Robert Garcia via 7th round TKO for the IBF super featherweight title in 1999. He defended three times - John Brown ((W 12), Derrick Gainer (TKO 3) and Angel Manfredy (TKO 3) – while also notching a non-title win over Justin Juuko (KO 10) before facing WBC champion Floyd Mayweather (TKO by 10) in a 2001 unification bout. He met Joel Casamayor in back to back bouts, losing via 6th round TKO in the first bout in 2003 and a 12–round split decision win for the vacant WBO super featherweight title the following year. In his next bout, he won the WBO lightweight title with a 10th round TKO over Acelino Freitas to set up a 2005 unification bout with WBC champion Jose Luis Castillo. In the “Fight of the Year,” he scored a dramatic 10th round TKO in one of the greatest action fights of all time. Unsuccessful in the rematch with Castillo (KO by 4) he remained WBC champion as Castillo was overweight. He lost the belt to Casamayor (L 12) in their rubber match. 

One month following his last bout against Joshua Clottey (L 10), on May 7, 2007 he died from injuries suffered in a motorcycle accident in Las Vegas, NV at age 29. His professional record is 40-5 (33 KOs).
