Boxer Maxim Dadashev has died. He was 28.
Dadashev suffered injuries during his fight on Friday in Maryland. He lost in the 11th round against Subriel Matias.
After the fight, Dadashev was transported to UM Prince George’s Hospital Center. Upon arrival, he underwent emergency surgery in an attempt to save his life.
Dadashev was experiencing a subdural hematoma — bleeding from the brain — and was placed in a medically-induced coma.
According to ESPN, he was bleeding from the right side of the brain. Mary Cobb — the neurosurgeon — told his manager, Egis Klimas, via ESPN, they had to shave his head and cut his scalp open.
Dadashev had signs of severe brain damage, the story said. At the time, the staff gave him medication in an attempt to decrease the swelling in his dead.
When he lost in Friday, it was his first pro loss. The Russsian fighter was 13-1 as a professional.
One of ESPN’s boxing experts, Max Kellerman, said Dadashev was fighting for his green card. He eventually wanted to move his wife and small child to the United States.
