Canadian boxer Adonis Stevenson has been upgraded from critical to stable condition but remains in an induced coma after being knocked out in his light heavyweight title fight.
Boxing promoter Yvon Michel tweeted about the 41-year-old Stevenson's condition.
"The state of Adonis has gone from critical towards stable from yesterday to today which is a relatively good news. He is in controlled sedation to facilitate his recuperation," Michel tweeted on Sunday.
"His family, his wife Simone and Groupe Yvon Michel would like to thank the many people who have taken the time to send comforting messages. New information will be published as we get it. No other comments will be made until then."
Oleksandr Gvozdyk stopped Stevenson at 2:49min of the 11th round on Saturday night to take the Canadian's World Boxing Council light heavyweight belt.
The Montreal-based Stevenson was put on a stretcher after the bout and left Videotron Centre in an ambulance.
He was making his 10th title defence since he beat Chad Dawson in 2013 and was ahead on two of the judges' cards and tied on the third when he was stopped by Ukrainian Gvozdyk.
Stevenson dropped to 29-2-1 with his first loss since 2010 and first in Canada.
The 31-year-old Gvozdyk improved to 16-0.
