One of the doctors who worked the Stevenson-Gvozdyk fight, Dr Jean Doré, said he and his colleagues are at a loss to medically justify the sport.

"The goal of boxing is to inflict damage on the opponent, often by knocking him unconscious. And that carries important risks for severe head trauma", Jean Doré said.

“I can’t say we can justify it,” Doré said.

Yet despite his misgivings, Doré said he prefers to remain ringside rather than leave the sport.

:think
Perhaps he believes he can do some good and recognizes the fact that boxing isn't going away despite the fact that he sees it as unjustifiably unsafe.

There are rumours that things are not going very well.
His wife posted on twitter yesterday that she's ''praying for a miracle''.

Stevenson had a claimed glass jaw his entire career. other than the boone fight it took legit brain damage to knock him out. I'm not saying Stevenson was great but he was way better than people gave him credit for. it was a very competitive fight. lots of press scores had it 6-4 Gvosdyk and lots had it as close as 5-5. didn't matter with the ko. hope he gets better.

By the ref not calling it a knockdown he gave Stevenson a better chance at KOing him but he still couldnt so calling it a KD was pointless in the end
What?!
Oh. That's not good. It's been what, 2 weeks now?

Lol its pointless saying Stevenson was "robbed" of a knockdown because it didnt effect the outcome of the fight, by the ref not calling a knockdown it gave Stevenson a better chance at KOing Gvozdyk because he didnt get 10 seconds to recover

Coma is one thing. Not being able to breathe on your own is a whole other thing. He’s fucked. Won’t ever be the same again. Messed up, he should be retired at home, not taking head shots.

I understood what you said. I was merely criticizing an incompetent referee for not enforcing the rules.

Media statement regarding former world champion Adonis Stevenson from Girlfriend Simone “Sisi” God:

On behalf of Adonis and our family, I wanted to take a minute to thank everyone who has taken the time to reach out, send prayers and post about Adonis’ injury. We are so grateful for the outpour of messages, gifts and support that have come our way.

Superman is a world champion and has demonstrated his strength in facing every obstacle he has ever faced. He is a legend in the eyes of his fans, and a man that demonstrates to his family daily that inner strength and love can change and redeem even the greatest of hardships.

Despite recent reports being leaked to media, I wanted to clarify that Adonis is awake. He is healing from his injury in the private company of his family and his dedicated medical team. Adonis is a world champion in the ring and is exhibiting that same grit, strength and determination in his recovery.

Adonis and our family are so thankful to you all for your love and support and respectfully ask to continue to grant Adonis and our family privacy as he heals from this accident. With the holidays here, Adonis is spending time enjoying music and spending time with Adonia and his family and sends his love and appreciation to you all.

While our Superman Adonis recovers, I’ll be stepping in to deal with all business related to Adonis as the Superwoman he always tells me I am.

We are truly blessed by God and all of you for your support.
