Stevenson suffered 'severe traumatic brain injury'

"Mr. Stevenson underwent surgery on the night of Saturday into Sunday and has since been admitted to the intensive care unit", Turgeon said.

Doctors are giving an update today on the condition of Adonis Stevenson, a Montreal boxer who was put into an induced coma after suffering a knockout loss on Saturday. He suffers from severe traumatic brain injury. Although critical, his situation remains stable under the circumstances.

He is sedated, under artificial ventilation and is undergoing specialized neurological monitoring.

He told a press conference it was "too early to comment" on the fighter's longterm prognosis, but that likely he would have lasting neurological damage.

The medical team gave an update on Stevenson's condition on Wednesday, the first public statement since he was admitted to the Quebec City hospital following a knockout suffered at the hands of Oleksandr Gvozdyk on Saturday. "I urge the media to be very cautious about distributing medical information that does not come from an official medical source".

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.

He lost consciousness in the ambulance on the way to the hospital.
