Canadian boxer Adonis Stevenson restored his consciousness after staying in a coma for three weeks after a knee injury on December 1.
Stevenson's lover, Simone God, made a statement on Saturday that the light heavyweight boxer wakes up.
"He is healing in the family of a private company and a private medical team," said God. "Adonis is the ringleader in the world champion and regeneration," he said.
Stevenson's condition worsened after helping the locker room after fighting with Ukraine's Oleksandr Gvozdyk at the Videotron Center in the city of Krebec. He was taken to the hospital by an ambulance and was admitted with a traumatic brain injury that was causing rapid neurosurgery.
Intensive care specialist Dr. Alexis Turgeon told reporters earlier this month that the majority of patients have long been affected by such injuries.
God said he wanted to clarify the situation of Stevenson after "the last news leaked to the media."
Boxing entrepreneur Yvon Michel said on Thursday that Stevenson is still in coma and life support.
"He still needs mechanical help to breathe, and he did not get his consciousness," Michel said. "When we visit him, we can not stay with him for a long time, and doctors do not care about the things ahead."
The Montreal-based fighter defended the title of the 10th title in 2013 against the American Chad Dawson, and remained on the two cards of the judges and took third place in the fight against Gvozdyk.
Stevenson fought 16 straight from April 2011 to May 2011, winning a draw with Badou Jack in Toronto. Stevenson was hanged with the toughest margins in this fight, two referees were 114-114, and Jack was third with 115-113 goals.
It was the first time since December 1, when Jack was the first.
