Tellas Wylie and Darikson Martinez clash in the kickboxing ring at Fight For It XIV

Tellas Wylie made his presence known at Fight For It XIII. In a dominant debut performance, Wylie commanded the center of the ring with fast combinations, mixed with kicks to the legs and head of his opponent Skut Ayun. By bout’s end, Wylie’s victory was clear, and the judges concurred.

He’ll be looking to carry that same level of ring control and swift offense into his second bout, against the 1-1 Darikson Martinez. But Martinez is fresh off an October victory at an AK Promotions event at Carolina Kickboxing Academy. There, Martinez proved his tenacity, coming back from a tough first round to claim the win.

Both of these fighters will be hungry for their second taste of victory, but only Martinez has tasted defeat in the ring before. Wylie has every reason to feel confident stepping into the ring on Feb. 18, but if Martinez can put him on the back foot early, experience may get the upper hand.
