Wohlman to Face Avelar

Zachary Wohlman's opponent for his comeback fight is scheduled to be Omar Avelar at Hollywood Park Casino in Inglewood, California. The bout is scheduled to take place tomorrow and is slated for four rounds.

Wohlman (4-1-1, 1 KO) suffered his lone career defeat in his last fight, a fourth round stoppage at the hands of Alonzo Loeza. That contest took place last November. So far in 2013, Wohlman has had two fights cancelled.

Avelar (2-7, 1 KO), a 23-year-old, is from the Lummi Reservation in Washington. He's lost his last four fights, all stoppages, including one in May and is a couple of inches shorter than Wohlman. Against Javier Garcia in March, Avelar often rushed in off balance, leaving his head exposed while he wildly threw wide punches. He was stopped in the second round of that bout.

Avelar is also an MMA fighter. In that sport, he's had more success than he's had in boxing, but he's lost two  fights in 2013, both first round submissions. His last bout was just three weeks ago.
