Russian boxer Maxim Dadashev has died following injuries suffered in his IBF light-welterweight fight against Subriel Matias in Washington on Friday.

The bout was stopped by Dadashev's trainer Buddy McGirt at the end of the 11th round and the 28-year-old was taken to hospital with bleeding on the brain but failed to recover following emergency surgery.

A statement from the Russian Boxing Federation said: "Russian boxer Maxim Dadashev died in the United States as a result of injuries suffered in a fight with Subriel Matias. The Russian Boxing Federation expresses deep condolences to Maxim's family and friends."
