Russian Junior welterweight boxer Maxim Dadashev sadly passed away this morning, four days after suffering severe brain damage following a fight against Puerto Rican boxer Subriel Matias in Maryland. Dadashev was just 28 years old.

According to ESPN, his trainer Buddy McGirt and strength coach Donatas Janusevicius confirmed the news and said that the fight was stopped after the 11th round against Matias. They added that Dadashev was quickly transported to UM Prince George’s Hospital Center.

“It just makes you realize what type of sport we’re in, man,” McGirt told ESPN. “He did everything right in training, no problems, no nothing. My mind is like really running crazy right now. Like, what could I have done differently? But at the end of the day, everything was fine [in training].

“He seemed OK, he was ready, but it’s the sport that we’re in. It just takes one punch, man.”

The boxer had to have surgery to relieve a brain bleed from the trauma. He was then placed in a medically induced coma.

In order to stop the swelling he had to have the right side of his skull removed. He passed away before his wife could get to the hospital from Russia.
