APOLOGIES in advance for the bleak nature of today’s BN@5 offering but it’s always important to reflect on the grim realities of the sport, especially when it’s currently dealing with yet another failed drug test.  

The first bit of news concerns the late Maxim Dadashev, who sadly passed away last week from injuries sustained in a bout against Subriel Matias on July 19 in Maryland.

According to TASS, the Russian Boxing Federation are going to submit a lawsuit to the organisers of the fight on behalf of Dadashev’s widow, Elizaveta Apushkina. The lawsuit centres on two possible rule violations which, Apushkina believes, may have led to the 28-year-old’s death.
