Wohlman Returns to the Ring

Zachary "Kid Yamaka" Wohlman is scheduled to be back in the ring on January 17 at the Oceanview Pavilion in Port Hueneme, California. Wohlman is coming off of a decision loss to Paul Velarde in August.

Wohlman (8-2-1, one KO) was the lightest of his career- 141.25 pounds- against Velarde. That fight was the first time Wohlman boxed as many as six rounds. Zac is a slick and skilled boxer who can hurt opponents, but doesn't possess knockout power. He's had issues with stamina and injuries during his career.

Wohlman's opponent will be Vicente Guzman (2-4-1), a surging welterweight from California. Vincente's record and moniker are both misleading. Nicknamed "Manos de Cemento," Guzman has no knockouts, but he has won his last two fights. All four of his losses came against undefeated fighters. He won a six-round split decision against Manuel Alejandro Reyes in November. Wohlman will be the most experienced opponent of Guzman's career.

This bout is slated for six rounds.
