On his recent training camp:
“I had a great camp, and everything is coming together. I feel like every part of my game is improving especially my ability to box from a distance. I’m using my feet more and I’m taking less hits in sparring. I’m in great shape and ready to put on a show for the fans.”

“I feel confident that I’ll be able to be successful against Sauceda and showcase everything I’ve been working on in the gym. He’s coming off a couple of losses so I’m expecting him to come into the ring with nothing to lose. I’m prepared to go the distance if need be, but my thoughts are on ending the fight by knockout. Either way, I’m coming to win.”
On fighting in Nashville:
“I will have a lot of fans coming out to support me since I live just outside of Nashville. Cheatham County will be deep in the audience. Fighting at home is something I look forward to because of all the fans that come out to see me fight.

On what a win will do for his career:
“A victory will give me the confidence needed to take my career to the next level. Right now, I’m working my way back to getting into a big fight. My promoter Lou DiBella is planning something big for me. I just need to put together a few wins to get back on track. A win against Sauceda will keep the momentum going.” Tickets priced $40 (Balcony), $60 (Prefered), $100 (Floor)and $200 (Ringside)are on sale now and can be purchased online by using the code “TOMLIN” at ticketmaster.com.
