Adonis Stevenson speaks on his future!
In his first public interview since losing his WBC light heavyweight title in December 2018 to Oleaksandr Gvozdyk, Adonis Stevenson declared he’s back! The interview was conducted by Canadian based outlet TVA Nouvelles with reporter Nancy Audet.
Before you get too excited, it’s not the kind of return the phrase would have many thinking. While his days as a professional fighter are over, he’s eyeing a return to the sport as a trainer, hoping to teach younger kids interested in boxing the ropes.
He had this to say about recovering from life-threatening injuries sustained in his fight with Gvozdyk that left him in a coma and resulted in him having to learn how to walk and talk again.
“I’m back. Adonis is back! I’m getting better and better! I’m continuing the treatments.”
“You learn to walk, you learn to eat, you learn a pack of business when you’re in a coma. That was the hardest thing for me and I learned! It happened really fast. It’s going well! I’m in shape! It’s good to be back! We take it day by day.”
“Young people who want to learn to box, I’m here! I am ready for them!”
It’s great news to hear that the former champion is regaining his cognitive abilities and is on his way to a miraculous recovery.
We here at 3kingsboxing.com wish Adonis Stevenson continued success on his road to recovery!
