Adonis Stevenson, former WBC world Champion, is in critical condition following a match with newly crowned WBC Champion Oleksandr  Gvozdyk. Stevenson was on his 12th defense of his title that he won in 2013 when he KO’ed Chad Dawson in the first round. His match with Gvozdyk was a seesaw battle that saw Stevenson hit the canvas in the 11th round. Following the boxing match, and a brutal KO, Stevenson was taken to the hospital where he was diagnosed with Traumatic Brain Injury. He is currently in an induced coma and underwent emergency surgery. Our prayers and well wishes are with the long running former champion. We are confidant that he will pull out of this fight triumphantly, like most of his bouts. While his career has most certainly has run its course, Stevenson was a great champion that has a lot more to offer the world.
