The two met in an IBF eliminator in Maryland, USA. Dadashev’s trainer stopped the fight after the 11th round because he was concerned his fighter was getting hit too much by the 27-year-old Puerto Rican.

“No one is prepared to die while looking for dreams and goals. We simply go up to the ring thinking about the well-being of our family without knowing how complicated and difficult it is to get into the ring. Fly high great warrior. Only God knows the reason for things. You will always have my respects. RIP Maxim Dadashev,” Matias stated.
“I don’t want this check. Those were his first words,” spokesman Fernando Gaztambide recalled about Matias. The North American flew home right after the bout and it is currently staying in his apartment with his girlfriend and manager.
