“Maxim was a terrific young man,” Top Rank chairman Bob Arum said in a press release statement. “We are all saddened and affected by his untimely death.”

Dadashev’s manager, Egis Klimas, was informed by neurosurgeon Dr. Mary In-Ping Huang Cobb on Saturday morning that Dadashev was bleeding on the right side of his brain and was “showing signs of severe brain damage,” told Kim.

In addition to the surgery, Dadashev was given treatment to reduce brain swelling.

Janusevicius said Saturday that Cobb told him the bleeding and swelling had stopped but that Dadashev was in critical condition.
