Canadian boxer Adonis Stevenson remained sedated in hospital but his condition improved to "stable", his doctors said Monday after the fighter lost his World Boxing Council light heavyweight title to Ukrainian Oleksandr Gvozdyk.
We will remind, on the night of Sunday, 2 December, took place the battle of Alexander Carnation against Adonis Stevenson for the title of world champion in the light heavyweight division by the WBC.
Stevenson's partner, Simone God, also made her first public comments Tuesday, thanking people for their messages of support.
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.
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.

She recalled her trip to see him in America, saying: "Prince Philip and I remember our days in Texas in 1991 with great fondness". Bush cap more than three years of hostility between the current president and the Bush family.
Turgeon noted that Stevenson requires "mechanical respiratory assistance, deep sedation and specialized neurological monitoring". Although his condition is considered stable, it is in a relative sense as it is still a critical time for Stevenson and too early to say anything regarding his long-term prognosis.
"He suffers from severe traumatic brain injury.
The family wants to be at the bedside of Mr. Stevenson, and asks everyone to respect their privacy", said Targon.
Stevenson was making his 10th WBC title defence since winning the belt in 2013 by defeating American Chad Dawson and had successfully defended the title against Britain's Tony Bellew.
