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 as well as whats next for the 147-pounder, who trains with Eric Brown and Freddie Roach at the Wild Card Boxing Club. 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. Im 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. Im not blaming him. I think it was an accident. 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. Im heartbroken with how the fight ended. 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 Im a better fighter than him. I want to continue growing. I saw his look, adjusted to it, and now I want a new look. Im 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 Id rather continue to grow as a fighter. 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 Im getting more comfortable in real fights as I am in the gym. Just because I can spar with Paulie Malignaggi at Wild Card doesnt mean I can fight him under the lights right now.

Seeing the positives in it, Im still undefeated. It was a freak accident, and when you watch something like that from the outside, you dont think it will happen to you, but its 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. Its good to know that I reacted that way, and now Ill be a little more prepared next time around.
