GVOZDYK DETHRONES STEVENSON IN THE ELEVENTH – FORMER CHAMPION IN CRITICAL CONDITION

The new WBC light heavyweight champion Oleksandr “The Nail” Gvozdyk (16-0, 13 KOs) broke the long reign of former champio Adonis “Superman” Stevenson (29-2-1, 24 KOs) in the eleventh round on Saturday night, scoring a stoppage victory at the Videotron Center in Quebec City, Canada.

Gvozdyk dropped Stevenson in round three but somehow referee Michael Griffin ruled it a slip.

Stevenson rocked Gvozdyk in the tenth but only a round later was knocked out from a series of hard shots from the Ukrainian.

Stevenson In Critical Condition

Adonis Stevenson’s family and promoter Yvon Michel are currently with him at the Hôpital de l’Enfant-Jésus in Quebec City. They want to inform friends and supporters that Adonis is currently in critical condition and in intensive care following his fight against Oleksandr Gvozdyk.

They appreciate the concern and support of everyone for Adonis. There will be no other comment for now and they respectfully request your understanding of their desire to stay private. The 41-year-old Stevenson left the ring under his own power, but his condition changed very quickly and he was rushed to the closest hospital.
