The Head of State congratulated Stevenson Adonis which makes the pride of all Haitians on the international scene "Congratulations. We are really proud of you. I myself am a fan of boxing, a lover of boxing [...] I take this opportunity to reiterate, once again, my determination to reward the efforts made by the Haitians living outside the country in order to project a positive image of Haiti in the world. I encourage you Stevenson to always makes float highest our flag and be a role model for our young athletes."

Stevenson gave President Martelly the pair of boxing gloves he had used during his victory against Chad Dawnson "It is with pleasure that I received these gloves on which it must still be the DNA of loser," said humorously the Head of State, adding "The people recognize themselves in him. I think he will have put in them this breath that they need to aspire to a better future."

Stevenson took the opportunity to launch a message of hope to young Haitians "I am more than satisfied with my trip to Haiti [...] if I was able to do what I did, them also are able [...] I began far from there, but I am today at the Presidential Palace. If I am able, you are able too !"
