Adonis Stevenson, who was in critical condition last night following his knockout loss to Oleksandr Gvozdyk, has been upgraded to stable condition as of this evening.
Promoter Yvon Michel shared the news on Twitter.
“The state of Adonis has gone from critical towards stable from yesterday to today which is a relatively good news,” he posted. “He is in controlled sedation to facilitate his recuperation.”
Stevenson, 41, was stopped in the 11th round after a flurry of clean punches connected, putting him down hard in the corner of the ring in Quebec City.
The Montreal Journal reports that Stevenson (29-2-1, 24 KO) was discussing the fight in the locker room with Michel when he left to shower. After showering, he felt dizzy and had trouble standing, and the doctor was called in to take another look at him. After it was decided to send him to the hospital, Stevenson lost consciousness.
The Journal also reports that Stevenson has undergone surgery to reduce cerebral hemorrhage, and that doctors will decide the next course of action in the coming days.
