“I want to thank all of my fans that will be coming down for the fight and our sponsors for making this possible. We’re hoping to end the year with another victory.”

Will Hunter of Rite Hook Promotions, a co-promoter of “Rumble in the Bay,” was in Nashville for Tomlin’s pro debut this past May and believes he can become something special.

“I was ringside for his debut and was really impressed. He came in great shape and can really fight. Ty has a great fan base that is willing to travel beyond normal lengths to support him. He’s got a really bright future and I’m excited to see him fight on our card November 23.”

If all goes according to plan in Tampa, Tomlin will kick off his 2020 by fighting Thursday, January 16 for Tri-Star Boxing at the Fairgrounds Nashville.
