Wohlman Returns September 20

Zachary "Kid Yamaka" Wohlman will be back in action on September 20. The 4-0 (one KO) welterweight will fight at the Florentine Gardens in Hollywood, California. All of his professional fights have occurred in the Los Angeles area.

Wohlman is a slick athletic boxer who works behind his jab. But he has shown a propensity to mix it up as well. He's trained by Freddie Roach and Eric Brown at the famous Wild Card Gym. Wohlman grew up often in trouble with the law and credits boxing with changing his life. He's a personable man who has fought in front of boisterous supporters throughout the first four fights of his career. He wears his hair slicked back and his heart on his sleeve, or perhaps more accurately, on his torso in the form of numerous tattoos.

Here is a profile of the throwback fighter in LA Weekly.
