Thomas, better known as Tommy, Riley is a teenage amateur boxer who won the national golden gloves title and was quickly scouted by several prominent managers. However, not one to leave his roots behind despite the lure of money, Tommy decided to stay with Greg's Gym and train under his tutors Greg Kinnear and Mark Little in the hopes of following in the footsteps of Hollow Bridge's legendary JD Malone.
The arrival of Jimmy Horn to Hollow Bridge saw a dramatic change in young Tommy. He dropped out of school despite having better than average grades and a gift for language, in favour of adopting a more strict training regimen. With Horn in his corner, Tommy appears to be going from strength to strength.
