The 41-year-old fighter looks to have a long road ahead.

Adonis Stevenson, who suffered an 11th round knockout loss to Oleksandr Gvozdyk last Saturday in Quebec City, remains in a hospital and in a coma, with doctors saying he’s in “stable but critical condition” after emergency brain surgery.

From ESPN and Dr. Alexis Turgeon:

“Mr. Stevenson underwent surgery on the night of Saturday to Sunday and has since been admitted to the intensive care unit. He suffers from severe traumatic brain injury. His situation is still stable under the circumstances, but critical. ... His condition requires mechanical respiratory assistance, deep sedation and specialized neurological monitoring. It is too early to comment on Mr. Stevenson’s long-term prognosis.”

BLH again sends our best wishes to Adonis and his loved ones.

The child, whom CBC News has agreed not to name to protect the family's privacy, was born in a country in North Africa and arrived in Quebec last year. Montreal surgeons examined her and discovered her cranium was filled with about three litres of fluid (roughly 20 times the amount in a healthy adult) and had grown to 71 centimetres in circumference.
