Wohlman Suffers Injury

Two of Zachary Wohlman's scheduled fights have been cancelled this year. On February 22, his opponent failed the doctor's physical at the weigh in. He was then scheduled to fight on March 14, but he suffered a broken jaw in training, Wohlman told The Jewish Boxing Blog.

"My mouth is wired shut right for another five weeks; then I'm back in the ring," Wohlman explained. Despite the setback, the California-native noted, "I'm trying to be as positive as possible."

Zac has fought all six of his career bouts at welterweight. The consequences of the injury will likely change the division in which the 4-1-1 fighter will campaign. "Because of the liquid diet, I've lost a lot of weight. I'll be fighting at light welter from here on out."

Wohlman lost his last fight back in November. He has since rededicated himself to the sport of boxing, but this latest obstacle will postpone his attempt to erase the memory of that last contest.
