Sensational young prospects Derek and Tyler Hinkey will return to action in their hometown of Reno, Nevada on Friday, July 10th on the terrific undercard of “Summer Showdown” at the Reno Events Center. “SUMMER SHOWDOWN”, an evening of world class boxing, is headlined by a ten round light heavyweight battle between The Fighting Pride of Northern Nevada, Jesse Brinkley and Baltimore’s Mike “THE PERSECUTOR” Paschall” and is presented by Reno’s “Let’s Get It On” Promotions and Las Vegas based TKO BOXING Promotions.
Middleweight Derek Hinkey, 7-1-0, has thrilled crowds in Northern Nevada since turning professional two years ago, all seven of his wins coming by knockout. This past February 14th he stunned the packed house at the Reno Events Center with a brutal first round knockout of Ariel Espinal on the undercard of the “CIVIL WAR” card headlined by Jesse Brinkley’s win over longtime rival Joey Gilbert.
Younger brother Tyler, 5-0-1, competing at heavyweight, has been just as destructive as his brother, winning four of his fights by first round knockout. On January 23rd of this year he scored a crushing stoppage of Benjamin Lee in Las Vegas.
Tyler will face Los Angeles native, Andrae Carthron, 2-2-2 (1KO), in a scheduled six round bout.
Said Terry Lane of “Let’s Get It On” Promotions, “Both Derek and Tyler are very popular in the Northern Nevada area and we’re thrilled to have them on this card. The fans here in Reno have been very supportive of them since they each turned professional.”
“It’s going to be a terrific night of boxing with Jesse’s return against Paschall, Rustam Nugaev’s taking on Miguel Huerta in the co-main, the Hinkey Brothers, the pro debut of the outstanding Russian amateurs, the Chudinov brothers, along with Matt Remillard and Bayan Jargal in separate bouts.”
