In the end, Dixon, the New Rochelle product heard her name announced as the winner, her second consecutive pair of Gloves, an elated Dixon leaped for joy. The super heavyweight was also named the P.C. Richard and Son Female Boxer of the Tournament.  “I proved to people I could amount to something,” an overcome Dixon said. “A lot of people said I couldn’t succeed. I’m so proud of myself.”
