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

He was stretchered to the Enfant-Jesus Hospital after the bout and was in intensive care, with his condition moving from critical to stable.

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. He suffers from severe traumatic brain injury.

"Mr. Stevenson underwent surgery on the night of Saturday to Sunday and has since been admitted to the intensive care unit", Dr. Alexis Turgeon, an intensive care specialist and anesthesiologist, said on Wednesday during the first official news briefing since Stevenson's injury. Although critical, his situation remains stable under the circumstances. Too early to assess the long-term prognosis for Mr. Stevenson.

CNN offices in NY evacuated after bomb threat
Just two months ago, bombs were sent to the CNN, as well as top Democrats like Barack Obama and the Clintons. Don Lemon , who was on the air when the threat forced the abrupt end of his show, also tweeted out the news.

"His condition requires mechanical respiratory assistance, deep sedation and specialised neurological monitoring".

The Hôpital de l'Enfant-Jésus has not issued any update on Stevenson's condition since Monday afternoon, when it said he was in an induced coma.

"His family, his wife Simone and Groupe Yvon Michel would like to thank the many people who have taken the time to send comforting messages".

The forty-one-year-old was ahead on the scorecards heading into the bout's final stretch but slumped into the corner of the ring after being caught by a barrage of punches from the challenger.
