By Daniel Cloutier

MONTRÉAL - The former WBC light heavyweight, the Montrealer Adonis Stevenson, is in a critical condition at the hospital Enfant-Jesus in Québec City. He is in a coma since Sunday morning. A doctor of this hospital is wondering is Stevenson will live or die.

Saturday evening in the ring of the Videotron Centre in Québec City, Stevenson (29-2-1) lost his world title (WBC 175 pounds division) against the interim champion and mandatory challenger, the Russian Oleksandr Gvozdyk (16-0-0).

Stevenson was leading the fight after eighth round, but in the 10th round, he showed signs of exhaustion. In the 11th round, Gvozdyk attacked furiously and few seconds before the end the round, he provoked a knockdown and he won by KO. Stevenson got a lot of problems to get back on his legs. About 15 minutes later, Stevenson has been transported to Enfant-Jesus Hospital.

It’s was the first time that Stevenson was losing in a world championship. Saturday, Stevenson, a fighter of 41 years old, was proceeding to the 10th defense of his world title.

According a doctor of this hospital, if Stevenson survives to this coma, he could become a handicap person for the rest of his life.
