New York: Jackie Tonawanda, a lady boxer, reports to the Human Rights Commission Dec. 24 to take on the New York State Athletic Commission, Santa Claus and anyone else who won't let her fight. She maintains the Boxing Commission (NYSAC) is depriving her of her right to make a living as a fighter. She charges the state with sex discrimination for refusing her a license. She says she has no intention of boxing male fighters in the ring.
