MAXIM DADASHEV has tragically died, aged 28, from head injuries suffered in a brutal loss to Subriel Matias on Friday, according to reports.

The Russian boxer underwent a serious brain surgery following the 11th-round defeat in an IBF light-welterweight title eliminator in Maryland.

Dadashev had the right side of his skull removed to ease brain swelling after suffering a subdural haematoma.

The op, performed by Neurosurgeon Mary I.H. Cobb, reportedly took several hours and the Russian was then placed in a medically induced coma.

But according to Russia Today, the super-lightweight lost the most important fight of his life and passed away due to the extent of his injuries.

Dadashev's camp stopped the Matias bout on Friday night after he missed a lot of punches in the 11th round.

He then collapsed in front of his fans before leaving the arena after struggling to walk out of the ring.

Russian outlet also reported the boxer vomited and lost consciousness.

Dadashev had not lost a professional fight prior to his Friday loss to Matias.

He had won all of his 13 bouts – 11 of them by knock outs – since making his debut in 2016.
