Dadashev Undergoes Two Hour Surgery, Part of Skull Removed

At The Theater at MGM National Harbor in Maryland, Subriel Matias (14-0, 14 KOs) used a hellacious body attack to stop Maxim Dadashev following the 11th round of an IBF junior welterweight world title eliminator.

At the time of the stoppage, Matias led comfortably by scores of 109-100, 108-101 and 107-102. He is now the top contender for the world title belt held by Scottish superstar Josh Taylor.

After the fight, Dadashev was taken to a local hospital, and he underwent brain surgery.


Dadashev became ill as he left the ring and was barely able to walk to the back, with several team members assisting him. He began to vomit as paramedics placed him on a stretcher and he was transported via ambulance.

During the ambulance ride, Dadashev lost consciousness. It was revealed at the hospital, that there was a lot of swelling to his brain.

According to veteran scribe Steve Kim, Dadashev went through a two hour surgery for a subdural hematoma. A part of his skull was removed to bring down the swelling. At the moment he's under observation in the recovery area, but the long term prognosis is not known.
