Welterweight world champion Errol Spence was involved in a one-car crash in Dallas but is expected to make a full recovery after sustaining facial lacerations, his management team said in a statement on Thursday (Oct 10).
“Errol Spence Jr, IBF/WBC unified welterweight world champion, was involved in a serious, single-car accident in Dallas early Thursday morning and is being treated at a Dallas-area hospital,” the statement said. “Spence is awake and responding and his condition is listed as stable. He did not sustain any broken bones or fractures, but has some facial lacerations. He is expected to make a full recovery.”
Spence was treated in an intensive care unit after his white Ferrari rolled over multiple times just before 3 am local time, Dallas television station KTVT reported, citing police. Police said Spence’s vehicle was traveling at high speed when it went across a center median and flipped over several times, throwing the driver, identified as Spence, out of the car.
“He is currently resting with his family by his side,” the statement said. “They want to thank everyone for their prayers and well wishes and are extremely grateful to the Dallas first responders who rushed to the scene to attend to Errol after the accident and the doctors who are taking care of him at the hospital.”
Spence, a 29-year-old southpaw, unified the World Boxing Council and International Boxing Federation titles two weeks ago with a split-decision victory over fellow American Shawn Porter in Los Angeles, improving to 26-0 with 21 knockouts.
