Stevenson remains "critical" with brain injury - surgeon

Stevenson remains

Adonis Stevenson has undergone surgery after suffering a "traumatic brain injury" against Ukrainian fighter Oleksandr Gvozdyk on Saturday.

He was making his 10th title defence since winning the belt against Chad Dawson in 2013 and was ahead on two of the judges' cards and tied on the third when he was stopped.

Stevenson was taken from the ring and instantly transported to the hospital where doctors have no doubt been frantically working to stabilize his condition for now.

The 41-year-old underwent surgery after the Saturday fight and "his situation is still stable under the circumstances, but critical", said doctor Alexis Turgeon.

We will remind, on the night of Sunday, 2 December, took place the battle of Alexander Carnation against Adonis Stevenson for the title of world champion in the light heavyweight division by the WBC.

According to the hospital, Stevenson's family asked for the doctor to provide an update because it has been inundated with requests, as has Yvon Michel, Stevenson's longtime promoter.

Turgeon says it is too soon to offer an opinion on the boxer's short- or long-term prognosis.
