Russian Super Lightweight prospect Maxim Dadashev, who collapsed following his IBF World Eliminator contest against Subriel Matias on Friday night, has passed away.
Following Matias being officially announced the winner, Dadashev began to show signs that his condition was deteriorating and had to be helped out of the ring.
Before he reached the changing room Dadashev began vomiting and the medical team on hand were alerted.
Dadashev’s condition worsened and immediately the medical team wheeled him to a waiting ambulance.
The first report on the ESPN+ broadcast from Bernardo Osuna was that Dadashev was “severely concussed” and “severely dehydrated,” as well as “continuously vomiting.”
A short time later later it was reported that Dadashev had lost consciousness in the ambulance, which diverted to the nearest trauma centre, where he underwent surgery to relieve swelling on the brain.
It was announced earlier today that Dadashev had passed away.
All at Go Sports and Entertainment send their sincere condolences to all of Maxim’s friends and family, especially his young wife, who hadn’t travelled to America for the fight but was at home in Russia when tragedy struck.
