The light-welterweight fighter was beaten in the 11th round in Maryland, USA, after trainer Buddy McGirt stopped the bout. The boxer then struggled to exit the ring and reportedly vomited before losing consciousness.

He underwent major brain surgery following the fight and had the right side of his skull removed to ease brain swelling after suffering a subdural haematoma, according to The Sun.

The Saint Petersburg-born boxer was subsequently placed in a medically induced coma, but died due to the extent of his injuries.

Dadashev leaves behind a wife and a young son.

Tributes have been flooding in for the 28-year-old on Twitter:

Prior to the tragic news of his passing, there was hope that he would 'come back to normal life'.

According to The Sun, his manager Egis Klimas was optimistic Dadashev would make a full recovery, saying: "Within the next couple of days the swelling should decrease. Let's hope that the part of the skull will be put back in place.

"The doctor says that Max may come back to normal life.

"Right now, he's in critical condition, but the doctor told me that he's stable."

Prior to Friday's fight, Dadashev had won all of his 13 bouts since his 2016 debut, with 11 of them won by knockout.

RIP Dadashev.
