Canadian boxer Adonis Stevenson in critical condition after knockout in title fight

Adonis Stevenson

Undefeated WBC mandatory light heavyweight challenger Oleksandr "The Nail" Gvozdyk (16-0, 13 KOs) scored an eleventh round KO to dethrone WBC champion Adonis "Superman" Stevenson (29-2-1, 24 KOs) on Saturday night at the Videotron Center in Quebec City, Canada.

Michel said he and Stevenson's family were with him and that "they want to inform friends and supporters that Adonis is now in a critical condition in intensive care in the hospital following his fight against Oleksandr Gvozdyk".

Stevenson, 41, was knocked out in the 11th round of an intense bout, losing his WBC light heavyweight title to Ukrainian Oleksandr Gvozdyk.

The 41-year-old former WBC champion is now in the intensive care unit at the Enfant-Jésus hospital in Quebec City, Radio Canada reported.

Stevenson was making his 10th title defence since winning the belt in 2013 by defeating American Chad Dawson.

In a press conference Saturday, Michel said Stevenson appeared confused when he arrived at the hospital.

According to a person who was in the dressing room but didn't want to be identified, Stevenson couldn't stand when the decision was made to call for a stretcher. "This is very worrying".

After ten fairly competitive rounds, Gvozdyk cranked up the offense in the 11th, and ended the reign of the long-time champion Adonis Stevenson with a snappy four-punch combo.

"You can see throughout the fight that Adonis was exhausted", he said. "That first long jab that hurt him before Gvodzyk landed the final five or six punches would have been enough to stop it".

The boxing community took to social media to express their sympathies for a great champion of the sport. "Thank God, they brought it back in, because there's so many injuries that can happen during training camps, during fights".

"I think there needs to be pressure from fans for increased empathy for fighters and increased safety for fighters", he said.

"New information will be published as we get it".
