Via NBC 4 Washington:
“No one is prepared to die while looking for dreams and goals.” “We simply go up to the ring thinking about the well-being for our family without knowing how complicated and difficult it is to get into the ring,” Matías said in a statement Wednesday. “Fly high great warrior. Only God knows the reason of things. You will always have my respects. RIP Maxim Dadashev.”
When Matías learned that Dadashev died after their punishing match, he broke down.
“I don’t want this check. Those were his first words,” his spokesman, Fernando Gaztambide, recalled Matías saying about his $75,000 in winnings.
Matías will be suspended in Maryland for 30 days, state documents reveal.
He received a 30-day medical suspension from the Maryland State Athletic Commission, which cited “laceration/head blows.”
The commission will conduct an investigation on the match, a spokeswoman confirmed.
