Wohlman Falls to Velarde

Coming in at the lightest of his career, Zac Wohlman suffered his second career defeat last night at the Glendale Civic Auditorium in Glendale, California. Unheralded Paul Velarde won by unanimous decision.

As in his first defeat, a stoppage loss to Alonso Loeza in 2012, a lack of stamina was Wohlman's issue. He was unable to box and move as Velarde applied relentless pressure. Velarde was more skilled fighting on the inside, which was the primary location of the fight.

The judges' scores were 59-55, 58-56 twice. Wohlman is now 8-2-1 with one KO. Velarde moves to 4-4-3.
