Wohlman to Fight This Week

Welterweight Zachary Wohlman is scheduled to be back in the ring on Saturday at the Forum in Inglewood, California on the undercard of Juan Manuel Marquez-Mike Alvarado. Wohlman's opponent is slated to be journeyman Eddie Cordova.

Wohlman (7-1-1, 1 KO) has won his last three fights, including a majority decision over Luis Hernandez in February. The 25-year old California native is a slick boxer who has been more aggressive at times in recent fights. In his lone loss to Alonso Loeza in 2012, stamina was a problem.

Cordova (4-7-1, 1 KO) is a 35-year old from Utah. Cordova has lost 6 of his last 7 fights. The only win came over Hernandez last summer. Cordova lost two unanimous decisions in April as a junior middleweight. Last July, Eddie was stopped in the first round against Olympian Errol Spence after a body shot. Cordova is a come-forward fighter who is often off balance.

This fight is scheduled for four rounds.
