We would like to acknowledge the professionalism and sportsmanship of WBC new champion Alexandr Gvozdyk, his management and promotion as they have been extremely respectful of the sensitive times and have remained quietly about such great victory in respect to Adonis condition.

The WBC also wishes to acknowledge the local boxing authorities, The Quebec Boxing Commission, under the leadership of commissioner Michel Hemlin as their performance of the emergency protocol was impecable. The inspectors and doctors worked in perfect coordination and the medical service was immediate to attend to Adonis at the dressing room and transportation to the hospital, getting him there in 9 minutes, and exemplary compliance of all medical and safety protocols to guarantee the attention within the “Golden Hour”.
