He was initially listed in critical condition and placed in a medically induced coma, though doctors later said he was stable.

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.

He told a press conference it was "too early to comment" on the fighter's long-term prognosis, but that likely he would have lasting neurological damage. "I urge the media to be very cautious about distributing medical information that does not come from an official medical source".

During the waning moments of the 11th round of his title defense on Saturday as part of the Deontay Wilder vs. Tyson Fury undercard, Stevenson was knocked out following a flurry of shots from the Ukrainian Gvozdyk, and it was evident immediately that he was suffering from injury. "The family of Adonis and Yvon Michel are now with Adonis Stevenson", he wrote.

On behalf of the Stevenson family, the hospital also issued a statement. The family of Mr. Stevenson, thank you all for your letters of support. "His condition remains stable."The Haitian-born boxer, 41, was admitted to the hospital on Saturday after the unbeaten 31-year-old Gvozdyk finished him off with a crushing right hand, leaving him leaning awkwardly against the corner ropes".

He was making his 10th title defence since winning the belt against Chad Dawson in 2013 and was ahead on two of the judges' cards and tied on the third when he was stopped.
