“Over the last 18 years, Broadway Boxing has become a global brand and I am so excited to bring the series to Murfreesboro on May 14,” said Lou DiBella, President of DiBella Entertainment. “Tyler Tomlin is already a star in Tennessee and has the potential to carry his stardom onto the global stage. Starting May 14, we will begin the process of making Tyler Tomlin a prominent name in the boxing world. Cheatham County has my word, he will not forget where he came from and will continue to be active in the Tennessee boxing scene.”

Just 21 years old, Tomlin has already made a huge splash on the Tennessee boxing scene since turning professional in May 2019. He has won his first 10 bouts, while cultivating one of the most loyal and passionate fan bases anywhere in professional boxing. Tomlin began boxing at age nine and was a touted amateur, compiling a 65-15 record. He won gold at the Tennessee Golden Gloves and Silver Gloves tournaments six times each, became a four-time Regionals champion, and won bronze at the 2015 Junior Olympics. He is trained by his father, Darryl Tomlin, at the Team Tomlin Gym, built four years ago on the family’s home estate.

“I’m extremely happy that I’ve signed with an experienced promoter like Lou DiBella, who has been in the boxing business for many years,” said Tyler Tomlin. “I believe that we will do incredible things together as I ascend to the top of the boxing world. We’ve discussed building my career in my home state of Tennessee and that’s an attractive part of our agreement. I want to bring big fights to Tennessee and I’m looking forward to taking my career to the next level. I know DiBella Entertainment can make that happen.”

“After going back and forth with negotiations, Lou DiBella gave us many of the terms we were seeking,” said Darryl Tomlin, Tyler’s father and trainer/co-manager. “Ty has built a tremendous fan base here in his hometown of Cheatham County and Lou agrees that we should continue to fight in Tennessee and maintain the momentum. We want to have a great working relationship with DiBella Entertainment and it’s truly a blessing for Ty and our family to be with Lou, who has also been involved in some of my favorite boxing movies like ‘Southpaw’, ‘The Fighter’ and ‘Rocky Balboa’.”

With under a week left until fight night, Tomlin gives his thoughts on training camp, making his DiBella debut, fighting in front of this home state fans, and more.

On his recent training camp:

“All the hard work is done and now it’s time to get a lot of rest during this final week of training camp. This camp has been very vigorous, but after today, I’ll be in recovery mode till fight night. In sparring, my timing is right on, and I’m feeling strong. I got some good rounds in with Austin Dulay, and I’m in great shape.”

On his matchup with Tyrone Luckey:

“Luckey has been in the ring with some big names like Ryan Garcia and Tevin Farmer. He’s also fought a lot of guys with undefeated records, so I know he’s coming to fight. My father has a great game plan that we’ve been executing during camp. I’m going to stay disciplined to that strategy and make adjustments as the fight goes on. If I get him hurt, I’m taking him out.”

On making his DiBella Entertainment debut:

“This is a big deal for me and my family. All we wanted was a promoter to believe in us and help build my brand in our home state of Tennessee. Lou DiBella stepped up and presented a deal that we couldn’t refuse. As soon as we signed, he put me in as the main event bout for this upcoming card. I’m ready to take the next step in my career with a seasoned promoter who knows the business.”

On fighting in front of his home state fans:

“Because I’ll be the final bout of the evening, all my hometown fans will be able to see some good action fights from the ladies. This is going to be a fun event, a big party, and I’m happy to be the special attraction. I’m expecting a lot of family, friends and sponsors to be in attendance. I can’t wait to put on a great show.”
