28-Year-Old Boxer Maxim Dadashev Passed Away Due To Brain Injuries Suffered During The Match Against Subriel Mathias!
Another tragedy in the world of combat sports! According to the ESPN report, Maxim Dadashev, a boxer who suffered TKO loss to Subriel Mathias, died on Tuesday morning because of brain injuries. The boxing bout happened in Oxon Hill, Maryland, the USA last weekend.
His coach Buddy McGirt stopped the fight before the 12th round because his boxer ate too many dangerous unanswered shots. Unfortunately, it was too late for Maxim Dadashev, who collapsed on the floor outside of the boxing ring.
Maxim was rushed to the hospital in Maryland for an emergency surgery, where he underwent a procedure to relieve a subdural hematoma. Dadashev stayed in a medical-induced coma until Tuesday morning, when he passed away.

This might open a debate on the fighter’s safety and referee stoppages. Maybe the refs will stop the contests earlier if the bout becomes too one-sided from now on.
Maxim Dadashev died at the age of 28. He was an outstanding boxer who set the score of 13-1, with 11 knockout victories. Rest in peace!
