    Boxing Ban Temporarily KO'd:  Boxing is close to being...

    Boxing is close to being back in Glendale.

The move paves the way for a possible boxing event at the Civic Auditorium in Glendale, which has outlawed professional fighting since 1947 over fears of the vices--gambling! whoring! gum chewin!--that accompany professional fighting.
