Montreal boxer Adonis Stevenson's promoter says the fighter is in critical condition after being knocked out in the 11th round and losing his WBC light heavyweight title to Ukrainian Oleksandr Gvozdyk in a fight Saturday night in Quebec City. He was ahead on two of the judges' cards and tied on the third when he was abruptly stopped.

Adonis Stevenson is in a stable but critical condition after suffering a "severe traumatic brain injury", the boxer's doctors have said.

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.

The hospital said it is too early to comment on his long-term health.

Stevenson was taken from the ring and instantly transported to the hospital where doctors have no doubt been frantically working to stabilize his condition for now.

Stevenson suffered an 11th-round knockout on Saturday during the light-heavyweight bout, slumping after a flurry of punches from Gvozdyk. "The family of Adonis and Yvon Michel are now with Adonis Stevenson", he wrote.

"He suffers from severe traumatic brain injury".

"His condition requires mechanical respiratory assistance, deep sedation and specialized neurological monitoring", she said.

A statement from the hospital added: "Mr Stevenson's family thanks supporters for their many messages of empathy and support over the past few days".

Stevenson was making his 10th title defense since winning his belt in 2013 by defeating American Chad Dawson."I talked to the people at the hospital".
