Subriel Matias breaks down Maxim Dadashev in eleven!
In a battle of unbeaten, power-punching junior welterweights fighting in a IBF title eliminator, Subriel Matias and Maxim Dadashev put it all on the line in this clash of styles battle.
Once the bell rang, Matias immediately began to bring the fight to his opponent. Behind an occasional jab and tight guard, he went to work.
Dadashev, however, would employ the total opposite, as his approach was to box and move.
After a slow first round, Dadashev would get into a groove in rounds 2 and 3. He would repeatedly land hard left hooks on his defensively flawed opponent.
Matias took back momentum in round 5 with his body assault. He slowed down his opponent who became a stationary target.
By the time round 8 ended, you could tell the pressure and body work was getting to Dadashev, who walked back to his corner very slowly.
Rounds 9 and 10 were by far the best action rounds of the fight. Both men stayed in the pocket and trading bomb after bomb! Still, it appeared that Matias would take the rounds.
Finally, the stoppage came after Dadashev’s trainer, hall of famer Buddy McGuirt, told the referee that his fighter had enough.
Matias now has a claim to be the mandatory for the winner of Josh Taylor vs Regis Prograis!
At the end of the fight, Maxim Dadashev struggled to hold himself up as he exited the ring. Bernardo Osuna, who was ringside, updated viewers with the news that Dadashev lost consciousness and will be given a CT scan.
3kingsboxing.com would like to wish him a fast recovery!
