Great News: Errol Spence Jr. in stable condition, no broken bones suffered following crash
The boxing world has been on pins and needles since this morning, waiting for some positive news. There is now an update on the condition of Errol Spence Jr., and it is a lot more positive than many expected.
According to a press release, the IBF and WBC Welterweight Champion did not suffer any broken bones, is stable and will be making a full recovery. This is after a car crash that occurred while he was driving his Ferrari in Dallas.
Here is the press release in full:
“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.
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.“
No timetable has been released for recovery time. Considering the circumstances, Spence is very lucky. According to Fox 4, the 29-year-old was driving higher than the recommended speed limit while also not wearing a seatbelt. The car went over the center median and flipped five times.
The link was attached, but we here at Double G Sports will not be showing the accident on our main site.
One of the top fighters in boxing today, Spence is coming off of a split decision win against Shawn Porter in what is considered a Fight of the Year contender. Many have been matching him up with Manny Pacquiao or Terence Crawford.
This will be Spence’s biggest fight to date, however. If everything works out well, Spence’s recovery time will be one of the best stories out there today.
