"In the circumstances, his condition is stable but it is critical", he said.

"Mr. Stevenson had surgery in the night from Saturday to Sunday and then was placed in the intensive care unit".

Update on Adonis @AdonisSuperman: The state of Adonis has gone from critical towards stable from yesterday to today which is a relatively good news.

Haiti-born Stevenson was knocked out in a WBC light heavyweight title fight in Quebec City on Saturday.

Turgeon noted that Stevenson requires "mechanical respiratory assistance, deep sedation and specialized neurological monitoring".

Turgeon says it is too soon to offer an opinion on the boxer's short- or long-term prognosis. "The family of Adonis and Yvon Michel are now with Adonis Stevenson", he wrote.

Earlier on Sunday, Michel tweeted his thanks on behalf of Stevenson's wife and family: "Thank you for your many messages of encouragement and support". "They want to be at the bedside of Mr. Stevenson and ask everyone to respect their privacy". "As agreed with Mr. Stevenson's family, please note that no further comments will be made".

A former WBC champion who was boxing's oldest and longest-reigning titleholder before losing to Gvozdyk (16-0, 13 KOs), "Superman" Stevenson (29-2-1, 24 KOs) had reigned for almost 5 ½ years. After Stevenson had fallen in the corner of the ring, the referee stopped the fight. He was able to eventually get to his feet and sit down on a stool to be examined by the ringside doctor and appeared alert until his condition deteriorated.
