A member of Team Quest, the 20-year-old Toombs went 4-0 in amateur competition as a featherweight, winning twice by TKO, once by submission and once by decision. His last amateur bout was last October.
After an unbeaten amateur run, Colt Toombs will make his professional debut on Thursday night in an undercard bout during a Tachi Palace Fights card in Leemore, Calif.
Toombs is the son of former professional wrestling great "Rowdy" Roddy Piper.
In his pro debut, he'll face Art Becerra, who is 1-1 and last fought in Sept. 2008.
In a pre-fight interview with Shoot Media, Toombs said that growing up the son of a wrestling legend had its negatives, but overall, the plusses far outweigh them.
"As a kid, a lot of people wanted to fight Roddy Piper's son and test their manhood, so I got in a lot of scuffles as a kid," he said. "It wasn't the easiest life, but I got a lot of cool perks from it. Got to go to a lot of cool places, meet a lot of cool people. He's a wonderful father. I got three sisters, a mother, and they've been married 27 years now. So I've got a great family and I couldn't ask for more."
Also on the Tachi Palace Fights card is a bout pitting Jeff Bedard vs. Cole Escovedo for bantamweight title, as well as separate bouts featuring former UFC fighters Hector Ramirez and Gabe Ruediger.
