Russian boxer Maxim Dadashev has passed away from injuries suffered in his boxing match on Friday night. Originally reported by Tass and later confirmed by ESPN, Dadashev previously was put in a medically induced coma and was given a brain surgery due to a subdural hematoma at the UM Prince George’s Hospital Center. News broke of his passing on Monday morning.
Dadashev fought on Friday evening at the MGM National Harbor in Oxon Hill, Maryland, USA, with his corner stopping the super lightweight bout in-between rounds 11 and 12. He was carried out of the ring with support but was put on a gurney after his legs kept giving out on him. It was reported that evening that Dadashev lost consciousness while in the ambulance, and reported the next day that he was put in a medically induced coma.
Dadashev was 28 years old and had a 13-1 pro-boxing record.
