Maxim Dadashev, Russian boxer, passed away earlier today from injuries he suffered during Fridays 11-round match.

Dadashev was in the 11th-round when his trainer, Buddy McGirt pleaded with him to stop the fight. Dadasheve who said no, seemed out of it and wasn’t very responsive. McGirt made the call within seconds and the fight was over.

Maxim collapsed and dramatically vomited before he made it to the locker room. He was rushed to the hospital where they removed part of his skull to relieve some of the pressure, he was then placed in a medically-induced coma.

News on Friday night broke and people praised McGrit for what he did, announcers discussed how this move probably saved Dadasheves life, after seeing how bad the kid was.

Steve Kim later tweeted that he was in critical condition but stable as the swelling went down and the bleeding stopped. His wife was on her way to see him from Russia.

Everyone prayed Dadashev made it out of the ring in time.

Unfortunately, Maxim who was only 28 and a junior welterweight, lost his first and last fight that night against Subriel Matias. Tuesday morning he succumbed to his injuries and passed away.

McGrit was later quoted saying “I saw him fading and when he came back to the corner, my mind was already made up.” He added “I was just asking him out of respect, but my mind was made up. I wasn’t going to let him go out there.”

There’s much talk about boxing and the rules that surround it when it comes to the safety of the boxers in the ring. This tragic incident will surely stir those feelings back up.

BIGPLAY sends all our love to the Dadashev family during this difficult time.
