Stevenson remains "critical" with brain injury - surgeon

Adonis Stevenson

He was initially listed in critical condition and placed in a medically induced coma, though doctors later said he was stable.

Intensive care specialist Dr. Alexis Turgeon told reporters today that Stevenson underwent surgery soon after he was brought to the hospital from the arena by ambulance.

Stevenson was dominated nearly from beginning to end by Gvozdyk, who unloaded a barrage of punches that sent the Canadian champion reeling before landing his knockout blow in the 11th.Gvozdyk claimed the belt in his first shot at a major title. Although critical, his situation remains stable under the circumstances.

His promoter Yvon Michel said Stevenson's condition had improved on Monday. It is too early to comment on Mr. Stevensonâs long-term prognosis, ' Turgeon said.

"His condition requires respiratory care, deep sedation and special neurological monitoring".
