Wohlman Cruises to Win in Debut

Zachary "Kid Yamaka" Wohlman won his debut by unanimous decision over Ricardo Malfavon tonight at Club Nokia in Los Angeles, California. Wohlman garnered scores of 40-35 on each of the three judges' cards.

Kid Yamaka looked quite competent and composed for his first professional fight. He utilized the jab early and never wavered from the game plan. He dominated Malfavon with his boxing skill and his ability to glide away from the 29-year old veteran's punches. Malfavon came forward the entire fight, but was rarely able to land on the defensively proficient 23-year old Jewish boxer.

Malfavon's best moment came in the beginning of the third round, but Wohlman showed no distress in eating a few punches. Through three rounds, it appeared that though Wohlman was winning easily due his boxing, he wasn't able to hurt Malfavon.

Twenty seconds into the fourth and final round, Wohlman loaded up with a left hook that set Malfavon on his trunks. Zachary kept his jab active for the rest of the round to cruise to the win. Malfavon, who has faced good competition despite the poor record, fell to 1-7-1 with one KO. Wohlman hugged his trainer, Freddie Roach, considered the best in the game, after the victory.
