Canadian boxer Stevenson suffered 'severe traumatic brain injury': hospital

Adonis Stevenson has undergone surgery after suffering a "traumatic brain injury" against Ukrainian fighter Oleksandr Gvozdyk on Saturday. He was ahead on two of the judges' cards and tied on the third when he was abruptly stopped.

The medical team gave an update on Stevenson's condition on Wednesday, the first public statement since he was admitted to the Quebec City hospital following a knockout suffered at the hands of Oleksandr Gvozdyk on Saturday.

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

He was stretchered to the Enfant-Jesus Hospital after the bout and was in intensive care, with his condition moving from critical to stable. Promoted by Yvon Michel, Stevenson entered his fight with Gvozdyk at 9-0-1 with seven KOs in championship bouts, including his title-winning 76-second stoppage of Chad Dawson in June 2013.

Dr. Alexis Turgeon, specialist physician in intensive care medicine at Hôpital de l'Enfant-Jésus of the CHU de Québec-Université Laval, shared the latest update, which can be seen below, on Stevenson's condition.

The severity of the injuries suffered by the 41-year-old has once again called into question the brutality of the sport, but for right now, much of the focus is undoubtedly on Stevenson making as much of a full recovery as he can in the future.

He is sedated, under artificial ventilation and is undergoing specialized neurological monitoring.

Further, "Mr. Stevenson's family thanks supporters for their many messages of empathy and support over the past few days", read the release.
