Adonis Stevenson suffered a brutal knockout and is now is in the hospital.

Stevenson lost his WBC and lineal light heavyweight titles when he was stopped by Gvozdyk in the 11th round of their bout.

"New information will be published as we get it".

He was put on a stretcher before being taken to hospital by ambulance.

Earlier on Sunday, Michel tweeted that Stevenson was in intensive care and that family members have asked that his privacy be respected.

The 41-year-old Stevenson (29-2-1, 24 KO's) earned the WBC belt in June 2013, knocking out former world champion Chad Dawson in 76 seconds with a first-round knockout of former world champion Chad Dawson and concluded a Fighter of the Year campaign in 2013 with a seventh-round stoppage of ex-titlist Tavoris Cloud in September.

The Ukrainian landed several solid blows at the beginning of the round, which left Stevenson faltering in the corner. Griffin missed a clear 3rd round knockdown for Gvozdyk when Stevenson was felled by a right hand, and then again in the 10th - this time for the defending champ after a clear shot to the chin wobbled the visiting challenger, with only the ropes breaking his fall.

Late Saturday, Michel said he'd spoken to the boxer immediately after the match and he appeared to be improving.

It's believed his condition worsened and he was unable to stand unassisted, and he was taken to the l'Enfant-Jesus de Quebec hospital, which specializes in neurosurgery and head trauma.

His condition is seen as critical, but how critical people they haven't said.

In a press conference late Saturday, Michel said Stevenson seemed disoriented and confused when he arrived at the hospital.

On Sunday, boxers training at Verdun's Angry Monkey Gym said the risk is part of the sport. "My prayers go to our champion Adonis and his family". He's resting right now, showing good signs, and we're hoping for the best. "The QC and I are wholeheartedly with you Champ!"
