Russian Boxer Maxim Dadashev has died at the age of 28. Maxim Dadashev who was placed in a medically induced coma after suffering ‘severe brain damage’ following an 11th round TKO loss to Puerto Rico’s Subriel Matias in Maryland , has died of his injuries.
The St. Petersburg born light welterweight boxer Maxim Dadashev collapsed while making his way out of the boxing ring moments after his trainer Buddy Mcgirt threw in the towel to save his fighter from further punishment after a savage beating at the hands of Puerto Rico’s boxer Subriel Matias on Friday. It later became known Maxim had suffered a bleed on the brain.

Buddy McGirt, one of the most emotionally intelligent trainers, has always been exceptional with these kind of calls in boxing.
Tragically, even he couldn't save Maxim Dadashev, no matter how much he begged and pleaded. RIP.pic.twitter.com/2NqFKFZCYp

🗣️"God forbid… one punch as you know can change a whole guy's life and I wasn't going to let that happen– so, I'd rather have them be mad at me for a day or two then to be mad at me for the rest of their life." 🙏

Maxim Dadashev absorbed over 300 punches during the course of the fight. By the 11th round, everything Matias threw seemed to shake the Russian to his boots and sap vital energy from his body, forcing him to become unsteady on his feet.
Sensing the stoppage, Matias continued to stalk his opponent, ripping shots to the body and then landing heavy blows to the head that shunted the Russian around the ring. It was enough to convince McGirt it wasn’t his night, and he pleaded with his charge in between rounds to allow him to stop the fight.
After the fight was halted, Dadashev made his way from the ring to a standing ovation, but soon collapsed and was taken away in an ambulance, per Bloody Elbow. He was initially reported as being “severely concussed” and “severely dehydrated”, but again lost consciousness and began vomiting on his way to hospital.
Matias was awarded a 14th straight victory in as many fights on the night in what served as an eliminator for the IBF 140 lbs belt in the co-main event at MGM National Harbor, Oxon Hill, but attention now surely will turn to tragic Dadashev, who lost the most important fight of his life.
RIP Maxim Dadashev.
He passed away from injuries suffered during Friday's fight, according to trainer Buddy McGirt and Donatas Janusevicius, Dadashev's strength and conditioning coach.
We join Maxim’s family and friends in grief, support and wish prompt resignation.

I – and I’m sure all of us who are boxing fans, and even just those who care about other people – are thinking of and praying for Maxim Dadashev to recover from the injuries he suffered in last night’s fight. When one hurts we all hurt. Get better. #DadashevMatias #MatiasDadashev
