Stevenson’s promoter, Yvon Michel, reported on Twitter on Sunday that Stevenson, 41, is “currently under careful medical supervision of very competent doctors in a controlled environment.”

The Haitian-born Stevenson (29-2-1, 24 knockouts) was leading on two of three scorecards Saturday in making his 10th World Boxing Council title defense despite getting knocked down in the third round (which referee Michael Griffin ruled a slip) and taking some heavy shots throughout the bout.

The 31-year-old Gvozdyk (16-0, 13 KOs), a stablemate of lightweight champion Vasiliy Lomachenko and unified cruiserweight champion Oleksandr Usyk at the Oxnard-based Boxing Lab, showed no intimidation before Stevenson’s vaunted power and engaged in a competitive bout that judge Mike Ross had 95-95 after 10 rounds.
