    Terrible news...

    Former light heavyweight world champion Adonis Stevenson underwent emergency brain surgery following his knockout loss Saturday night and remains in a medically induced coma, his doctor confirmed Wednesday.

    "Mr. Stevenson underwent surgery on the night of Saturday to Sunday and has since been admitted to the intensive care unit," Dr. Alexis Turgeon, an intensive care specialist and anesthesiologist, said on Wednesday during the first official news briefing since Stevenson's injury. "He suffers from severe traumatic brain injury. His situation is still stable under the circumstances, but critical."

    Stevenson suffered the injury when he lost the light heavyweight world title by 11th-round knockout to Oleksandr Gvozdyk at the Videotron Centre in Quebec City, after which he was taken to Enfant-Jesus Hospital.

    Yeah I’ve been watching this situation. Doesn’t look good. Hoping for the best for Stevenson and his family.

    Saw this too. The KO wasn't that bad, even stood up like often happens in this situation.
    This is a much higher profile figure than past situations.
    Just really hoping for the best, for him and his family.
    Questions will arise on what could've been done differently, but it's a sport centered around hitting people in the head.

    JJ does a little Coke and gets crucified on this site but a known gangbanger and woman beater gets a pass because he is a young prizefighter. It's disgusting.

    Considering he beat someone into a coma while in jail is karma working, fuck this guy I hope he never gets out of his coma.

    Damn, I didn't know all that.

    Truth be told, I've done my share of gangbanging and coke, and certainly woman-beating. (#AllDaySon)
    Not sure if I've ever beat anyone in jail into a coma, but as I was breaking out I wasn't gonna stand there and wait to see if he was alive.

    I still don't think I've earned critical condition yet.
    Maybe a good-sized arson will get me over the hump.

    He is a former gangbanger and pimp who went to jail for beating the women among other things. While in jail he beat another convict and put him in a comma. Karma finally found this asshole.

    Interesting. I know nothing of any of this. Please illuminate me. Perhaps it will get me to a Matt Serra stage with this guy...

    Ugh. I hope that this guy didn't genuinely turn a new leaf and reform himself before this happened. Better that he is still a fucker...

    A glimmer of hope for survival, but the brain trauma is bound to leave lasting impacts even if he ever leaves the hospital.
