By Ryan Maquiñana

After cruising to four victories to open his pro career, welterweight prospect Zachary “Kid Yamaka” Wohlman incurred a third-round technical draw after a clash of heads with Jesus Vallejo in Hollywood, Calif., last Thursday.

Wohlman discussed the disappointing end to the fight with BoxingScene.com as well as what’s next for the 147-pounder, who trains with Eric Brown and Freddie Roach at the Wild Card Boxing Club.

BoxingScene.com: Tell us what happened that caused the fight to be halted after the third round?

Zachary Wohlman: I was up every round on the judges’ scorecard.  It happened at the end of the third round.  I’m a pure boxer, and I had him breathing out of his mouth and his nose.  My rhythm was nice, and I felt him get weaker.  He jumped in with his head and it happened.  I’m not blaming him.  I think it was an accident.

BoxingScene.com: What is the status of the cut?

Zachary Wohlman: I have a deep gash right down to the bone.  I got 32 stitches in my head right now, but I could care less about that right now.  I’m heartbroken with how the fight ended.

BoxingScene.com: Where would you like to go from here?  Would you want a rematch with Vallejo?

Zachary Wohlman: I was up every round.  I think I showed I’m a better fighter than him.  I want to continue growing.  I saw his look, adjusted to it, and now I want a new look.  I’m only I guess you can say a moral victory over Vallejo is not going to mean that much to me. I ’m a young fighter, and I’d rather continue to grow as a fighter.

BoxingScene.com: As far as growing in the ring, what positives did you glean from your performance and what did you learn?

Zachary Wohlman: I started this fight like I was already in the second round.  I got my rhythm quicker.  I still have a ton of work to do, but I’m getting more comfortable in real fights as I am in the gym.  Just because I can spar with Paulie Malignaggi at Wild Card doesn’t mean I can fight him under the lights right now.

Seeing the positives in it, I’m still undefeated.  It was a freak accident, and when you watch something like that from the outside, you don’t think it will happen to you, but it’s boxing.  I learned that with the blood streaming down my face, I wanted to still keep fighting.  I wanted them to clean it up right away so I can get back in there.  It’s good to know that I reacted that way, and now I’ll be a little more prepared next time around.
