Boxer ‘awake and healing’ after injury

Stevenson was taken to hospital in an ambulance after the fight

Former world champion Adonis Stevenson is “awake” and “healing” from the brain injury he sustained during a fight, says his girlfriend Simone.

The Canadian light-heavyweight needed surgery after he was knocked out by Ukrainian Oleksandr Gvozdyk this month.

Simone ‘SiSi’ God said the 41-year-old was recovering “in the private company of his family”.

“Adonis is a world champion and is exhibiting that same determination in his recovery,” she said.
