Maxim Dadashev 1990-2019

At only 28-years-old, boxer Maxim Dadashev passed away on Tuesday morning due to the damage suffered from his fight on Friday night in Maryland.

Dadashev faced Subriel Matias in a main card fight of a Top Rank on ESPN+ card, and suffered a subdural haematoma, which is bleeding on the vein beneath the skull.

Near the end of the fight, Dadashev’s trainer Buddy McGirt implored Dadashev and his interpreter to stop the fight as he was getting “hit too much.”

Dadashev would shirk off McGirt’s pleas and stepped off the stool, where he would be stopped by Matias.

The fighter collapsed while making his way out of the MGM National Harbor as fans watched on, immediately sent to a local hospital.

Dadashev underwent emergency surgery to remove the right side of his skull removed to reduce brain swelling, and would be placed in a medically induced coma.

He would continue to deteriorate over the weekend, forcing his wife and son to travel to the United States from Russia to be with him before he passed away.
