Ramirez Donates $10,000 To Family of Dadashev
This past July, Maxim Dadashev passed away due to injuries he sustained in the boxing ring. Fighters, fans and promoters from all over the world mourned the loss of the young fighter. Many donated and continue to donate money to the family of “Mad Max”, all going towards a good cause.
Jose Ramirez wanted to help out any way he can. The WBC and WBO Super-Lightweight Champion recently put his fight-worn gear up for auction to the highest bidder.
“I’m honored and humbled to have been able to help out Maxim’s family,” Ramirez (25-0) said in a Top Rank press release. “Every fighter puts their life on the line in the ring. My prayers to his family.”
The 27-year-old gave up his fight-worn gloves, shoes and trunks from his round-six TKO-win against Maurice Hooker back in July. The Big Fresno Fair, the largest annual event in Central Valley, provided a bid of $10,000. One hundred percent of the proceeds will be sent to the Dadashev family.
“From the bottom of our hearts, and on behalf of Maxim’s family and our entire team, we would like to thank Jose, his team and The Big Fresno Fair for their generosity,” said Egis Klimas, Dadashev’s manager.
The outfit will now be displayed at the Fresno County Historical Museum.
“These items are incredibly important to our museum, especially with the recent addition of the life-size status honoring Jose,” The Big Fresno Fair CEO John C. Alkire stated. “When we knew this was going to support a family during a time of loss, we were all in.”
