Dadashev was rushed to a hospital in Washington, where part of his skull was removed to relieve swelling in his brain during an emergency operation.
He had extensive bleeding and was said to have signs of & # 39; serious brain damage & # 39; showed, according to reports.

Dadashev – nicknamed Mad Max – repeatedly hit the head against Subriel Matias
His manager Egis Klimas, who spoke after being admitted to the hospital, said: “Dadashev experienced brain swelling, so the right side of his skull was removed.
& # 39; The swelling should decrease within a few days. Let's hope the part of the skull is put back in place.
& # 39; The doctor says that Max can return to normal. & # 39;
The manager added: & # 39; he is currently in critical condition, but the doctor told me that he is stable. & # 39;
His condition & # 39; deteriorated rapidly & # 39; and his wife had run to his bed
Famous coach Abror Tursunpultanov who knows the boxer said: & I pray for Max … I saw the news in my phone and got terrified … I spoke with Max's physical development coach and he told me that well experienced doctor skull trepanation at Dadashev.
& # 39; This surgeon had previously operated on two victims with the same trauma and they both returned to normal later. & # 39;
Dadashev & # 39; s wife hurried from St Petersburg to be her husband.
His former coach Ruslan Dotdaev said to the Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper: “His mother and brother live in St. Petersburg.
& # 39; His father died a year ago. His wife is already en route to Washington to be with him.
The couple, who are based in St. Petersburg in Russia, have a son of two and a half
& # 39; She is in contact with the family and will tell them the news as soon as she knows more about Maxim's condition. & # 39;
The couple has a son of two and a half.
But Dotdaev said: “He is a person with a very strong will, it's hard to choose the right words for it.
& # 39; He is a man with a huge heart, with strong wishes and intentions. The instinct for self-preservation does not work at such moments.
& # 39; Maxim was ready to fight to the end and reject all dangers. It is very difficult to accept what happened to him. & # 39;
The 28-year-old lightweight hunter suffered a subdural hematoma as a result of the blows
The Russian sports doctor Denis Olisov said: & It is difficult to make predictions in this case. We must understand that skull repolation is at least breaking the scalp and requires time to restore bones.
& # 39; We are talking about a period of three to six months. Moreover, the state of swelling is not clear, nor which parts of the brain were affected.
& # 39; It is therefore not clear which functions can be influenced in the future … & # 39;
Dadashev – like his enemy Matias, 27 years old – had entered the battle unbeaten.
He took a succession of heavy blows in the 10th and 11th round of the fight of the International Boxing Federation.
& # 39; We knew [Matias] was a puncher, & # 39; said Klimas. & # 39; He fought and he was hard.
& # 39; He put a lot of pressure on Max and [Dadashev] went back and forth and back and forth, but he fought back. & # 39;
His trainer decided to end the fight after the 11th round on Saturday night
& # 39; He had a great fight, & # 39; McGirt said. & # 39; Tough fight, tough fight; made many heavy bodyshots.
& # 39; I just think it was time to stop it. He was hit with too many shots. I said to him: & # 39; I quit. & # 39; He said: & # 39; No, don't. & # 39; & # 39;
The brain surgery was performed by neurosurgeon Mary I.H. Cobb, according to reports in the US.
Allegedly she said to Klimas: & # 39; I would not give him up. & # 39;
Matias told reporters after the fight: & I only hope Maxim is fine … He is a great fighter and a warrior. & # 39;
