Maxim Dadashev Trainer

Buddy McGirt was the trainer of Russian boxer Maxim Dadashev who died on July 13, after he suffered brain injuries during a 140-pound world title elimination fight with Subriel Matias at the MGM National Harbor in Oxon Hill, Maryland on July 19, 2019.

Matias dominated the fight with Maxim receiving a lot of blows which lead to McGirt asking Maxim to stop the fight. Maxim refused which lead to McGirt asking the referee to stop the fight after the 11th round.

“I’m going to stop it, Max. Max, you’re getting hit too much… Please, Max, please. Let me do this. OK? OK? Look at me. Please… If I don’t, the referee’s gonna do it. C’mon, Max. Please.”

Maxim was taken to hospital after he collapsed and voted as he was being taken off the ring. He was diagnosed with a subdural hematoma and an operation had to be performed on him to try to relieve pressure on the brain. He was then placed in a medical induced coma but later died on July 23.

McGirt told ESPN; “It just makes you realize what type of sport we’re in, man. He did everything right in training, no problems, no nothing. My mind is like really running crazy, right now. Like what could I have done differently? But at the end of the day, everything was fine (in training). He seemed OK, he was ready, but it’s the sport that we’re in. It just takes one punch, man.

I saw him fading and when he came back to the corner (after the 11th round), my mind was already made up. I was just asking him out of respect, but my mind was made up. I wasn’t going to let him go out there.”
