Haiti - FLASH : The Haitian boxer Adonis Superman at the hospital in critical condition (UPDATE)
Saturday at the Center at Videotron Center, 41-year-old Quebecker Adonis Stevenson of Haitian origin, [born in Port-au-Prince on September 22, 1977], aka "Superman" (29-2-1, 24 K.-O .) defended his title of world champion of the World Boxing Council (WBC) light heavyweight against the Ukrainian Oleksandr Gvozdyk (31 years) (16-0, 13 KOs).

The fight started well for Steveson, who managed several attacks but failed to shake his opponent in the first half of the fight. From the 7th round the pace accelerated and the blows of Gvozdyk more often affected Adonis.

In the 10th round a blow from Adonis shook Gvozdyk who had to restrain himself to the ropes cables not to fall before facing again.

Unfortunately the last two minutes of the 11th round ended the reign of World Champion Adonis Superman, when the Ukrainian of a first right rang Adonis who froze by the blow ended up falling before getting up. Then Gvozdyk, following a beautiful combination sent Stevenson to the carpet with a powerful right.

KO, Stevenson took several minutes to get up and go back with difficulty and helped in the locker room. After his shower, Stevenson still looked, his eyes empty when he was dizzy. Helped by his team he was put on a stretcher and then rushed to the hospital.

"I talked to the people at the hospital. He was confused when he arrived. We fear a concussion. This is very disturbing," said Promoter Yvon Michel, who added that Stevenson was preparing to undergo further examinations.

A message posted on Twitter overnight said "Adonis Superman's family and Groupe Yvon Michel's leaders are currently with Adonis Stevenson. They wish to inform friends and supporters that Adonis is currently in Critical Care Critical Condition at the hospital, following his fight with Oleksander Gvozdyk. They appreciate the concern and support of all. There will be no other comments for the moment and they respectfully ask for your understanding in their desire to stay in private."

Last minute : This Sunday morning, Stevenson was placed in an artificial coma as a preventative measure due to possible cerebral hemorrhage. His condition is stable. Monday and Tuesday will be two decisive days for the boxer.
