Adonis Stevenson had emergency brain surgery, in stable but critical condition

Former light heavyweight world champion Adonis Stevenson underwent emergency brain surgery following his knockout loss Saturday night and remains in a medically induced coma, his doctor confirmed Wednesday.

“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. “He suffers from severe traumatic brain injury. His situation is still stable under the circumstances, but critical.”

Stevenson suffered the injury when he lost the light heavyweight world title by 11th-round knockout to Oleksandr Gvozdyk at the Videotron Centre in Quebec City, after which he was taken to Enfant-Jesus Hospital.
