According to Yvon Michel, promoter for former light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson, the boxer “is doing really well.”
Michel has stayed in steady contact with his boxer, who was seriously injured during his knockout loss to Oleksandr Gvozdyk, on December 1st in Quebec City.
After the fight, it was discovered that Stevenson had a brain bleed and he spent weeks in a coma. Doctors were initially unsure if the boxer would ever walk or talk again.
In early February, it was revealed that Stevenson had undergone a new operation to replace the part of the skull that was removed during his initial surgery in December. After this surgery, the pugilist had seen his condition improve.
“I have conversations with Adonis in the same manner that I’ve had before his accident. He moves on his own, he eats well. He spends weekends at home. What I am told is that there is still room for improvement, but he is very, very well supervised with therapy when it comes to his memory and on the physical side. He’s doing good,” said Michel to TVA Sports during a press briefing to discuss Oscar Rivas’s fight with Dillian Whyte in London in July
“[His recovery is] beyond anything I could ever think of after seeing him in a coma in Quebec.”
Michel said Stevenson’s family has preferred to be discreet about the health of the former champion. But according to Michel, the Quebecer could make a public appearance soon.
