Errol Spence Jr. in stable condition, expected to make full recovery after Ferrari crash

Errol Spence Jr.

Errol Spence Jr.’s condition has been upgraded after the champion boxer was injured in a car crash on Thursday morning.

Spence’s publicity company sent out a statement later on Thursday to Larry Brown Sports and other outlets to say that the boxer is now in stable condition, an upgrade after he was in serious condition after the crash. Spence is expected to make a full recovery.

“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. 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,” the statement said.

“He is currently resting with his family by his side. 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.”

The 29-year-old boxer flipped his Ferrari in a rollover crash around 3:00 a.m. in Dallas.

Video shows Spence’s vehicle flipping over and rolling multiple times:

After watching that, it’s pretty incredible that the unbeaten boxer did not suffer any broken bones.

Spence (26-0, 21 KOs) beat Shawn Porter at Staples Center in Los Angeles two weeks ago to retain his IBF welterweight title and win Porter’s WBC welterweight belt.
