What makes Dylan Bostic stand out? It’s all about the stage presence.
To understand the charming wrestler, you first need to understand the art of stage presence – the kind built from beating the odds, going after what you want over and over, and knowing when to apply pressure. There’s an art to mastering stages, whether it’s the wrestling ring, the boxing ring, a set, or just the space in front of a camera phone.
In an old video, Dylan Bostic stands casually in front of a fireplace while being interviewed. Who is he here? A charming, friendly guy with a slight smile on his face, arms crossed, easing you into his introduction. When asked how he feels about wrestling, he laughs, stating, “I hate wrestling.”
That stage presence fills the room, and Dylan speaks up, clarifying his joke. “Wrestling’s my life, my dream, my passion,” he says, smiling easily. This side of Dylan is calming, bringing nuance to his boastful wrestling persona. Even so, he manages to captivate his audiences even when he’s being casual and honest.
What makes Dylan so fascinating to watch? As he transitions from wrestling to professional boxing, it feels like it’s all in the momentum. The many stages that Dylan has mastered and traveled set him apart, and now he’s set to add one more: professional boxing rings.
Dylan Bostic the Wrestler
Dylan’s first stage, and first love, was wrestling.
The judgment and love of wrestling are where Dylan began his professional journey, and there’s no better way to enter the world of performance. You survive the ring as much as you grow with it. At 15, the young hopeful started training with Dan Garza in Whiteland, Indiana. He trained under legendary trainer Rip Rogers, aka Disco Kid. He gained skills that not only helped him break into wrestling but helped teach him the art and athleticism of combat sports.
Dylan has wrestled for ICW, OVW, and NSPW, traveling over North America and making a name for himself. Trying to break into his dream wrestling career wasn’t always great. On his WWE tryouts, Dylan says, “I’ve had many ups and downs in my career. Getting told “no” by WWE after multiple tryouts that went great, in my opinion, hurts, but I had to keep working.”
If wrestling teaches you anything, it’s to take disappointment on the chin. Dylan Bostic didn’t back down. Through disappointment, through triumph, through it all, Dylan Bostic is a wrestler’s wrestler. Over the years, he’s won several championships throughout the United States and Canada.
As Dylan transitions into boxing, he makes it clear that wrestling was the stage that molded him into what he is. The fans that support him are in for a remarkable transformation.
“Wrestling is in a great position, and so is boxing,” Dylan states. “Both industries have a lot of new viewers, and both are booming. I’m looking to make all of the wrestling fans proud of my pro boxing debut.”

As Dylan shifts from wrestling to professional boxing, he has a huge advantage: he understands the stage and fighting, whether it be the audience surrounding it or the opponent inside it. There’s no learning curve to go over.
Training under retired pro boxer Cedric “Ced” Johnson, Dylan is easing into the field. It sees him back in Indiana under the wing of CBA Promotions. Dylan is more than optimistic about his pro boxing career: he’s sure.
