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.

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. Too early to assess the long-term prognosis for Mr. Stevenson.

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

"His condition requires respiratory care, deep sedation and special neurological monitoring".

His promoter Yvon Michel said Stevenson's condition had improved on Monday.

The World Boxing Council also took to social media to send best wishes to Stevenson, while Tony Bellew, who was knocked out cold by Stevenson in a world title bout in 2013 also sent out a message in support of his former opponent.

"Relatives want to be at his bedside and ask everyone to respect their privacy". The family of Mr. Stevenson, thank you all for your letters of support.

The forty-one-year-old was ahead on the scorecards heading into the bout's final stretch but slumped into the corner of the ring after being caught by a barrage of punches from the challenger. 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.
