UPDATED 8:00 PM – As per Stevenson ‘s promoter Yvon Michel, “Update on Adonis @AdonisSuperman: The state of Adonis has gone from critical towards stable from yesterday to today which is a relatively good news. He is in controlled sedation to facilitate his recuperation. His family, his wife Simone and Groupe Yvon Michel would like to thank the many people who have taken the time to send comforting messages. New information will be published has we get it. No other comments will be made until then.”
Sad news continues to come out regarding Adonis Stevenson today. According to the Montreal Journal, Stevenson has been placed in a medically induced coma to reduce any swelling from a brain hemorrhage that he suffered from his knockout loss last night.
Adonis Stevenson’s fiancée, Simone God, his team members and loved ones are all by his bedside supporting the 41-year-old former world champion, as he remains in intensive care.
“I don’t want to comment to much on it, but ‘m at the hospital, trying to be next to him and to support him. He’s a champion, he’s a fighter, he’s going to fight this,” said Simone God.
“We’re partners in life and we’re partners in business. He’s resting right now, showing good signs, and we’re hoping for the best. I have faith that he’s going to be okay. We have good people here, we have support, and we’re trying to keep it together for Adonis and to stay strong for our baby, Adonia. Adonis loves her very much, so he’s going to fight for her. We’re asking that everyone respect our privacy and that you keep us in your prayers. So we’ve got this.”
“News on the condition of Adonis. The family of Adonis and Yvon Michel are currently with Adonis Stevenson,” Stevenson’s promoter, Yvon Michel, posted on his Twitter account early Sunday morning.
“They want to inform friends and supporters that Adonis is currently in critical condition in intensive care, at the hospital, following his fight against Oleksander Gvozdyk. They appreciate the concern and support of everyone. There will be no further comments at this time and they respectfully request your understanding in their desire to stay private.”
Unfortunately, it appears Stevenson’s condition has not improved throughout Sunday.
Via the Montreal Gazette:
Stevenson was taken to Quebec’s Hôpital de l’Enfant-Jésus, which specializes in neurosurgery and head trauma. When he arrived, he had serious concussion symptoms.”
Placed under observation for at least six hours, it appears his condition deteriorated to the point where he was placed in a medically induced coma.
While it has not been explained why this procedure was done in Stevenson’s case, it is sometimes used to reduce pressure on the brain in cases of hematoma or cerebral hemorrhage.
We here at The Fighting Voice are sending our thoughts and prayers to Adonis and the Stevenson family. Stay strong champ, the fight is not over yet.
