ALERT: Official GoFundMe Established To Benefit Maxim Dadashev Family

Friends, it's been a sad week in the sport.

Maxim Dadashev perished from injuries sustained in his July 19 bout against Subriel Matias.

Dadashev leaves behind a wife, and a child.

As we sadly know, the world keeps turning, and those left behind have to cope. Rent has to be paid, still, and expenses still pile up, after the main bread-winner has been removed from the equation.

Top Rank made a donation directly to the Dadashev family, so you know. And here is the release with a link to the official GoFundMe:

(July 26, 2019) — In honor of Maxim Dadashev, an official GoFundMe account has been set up in his memory. All proceeds from the page will be donated to Maxim's widow, Elizaveta Apushkina, and their two-year-old son.

Maxim's friends and family would like to thank the entire boxing community for their outpouring of love and support.
