Welterweight Champ Errol Spence Jr. seriously injured following a car crash
The boxing world woke up to some terrible news this morning (10/10), as Errol Spence Jr. was rushed to a hospital in Dallas following a car crash in the area.
According to Fox 4 in Dallas, a high-profiled person was involved in the crash, later confirmed to be Spence. The 29–year-old is in intensive care but is expected to live.
Fox 4 has more from the accident, including the terrifying pictures from the scene.
According to the police, Spence 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 Long Islander, with ties to Texas, just recently defeated Shawn Porter via split decision to unify the IBF and WBC Welterweight Titles. Prior to the accident, Spence’s Instagram showed him out with his friends somewhere in the Dallas area, which makes things even more tragic.
At this time, it is unknown if the previous factors resulted in the crash. At this moment, however, that is not what matters. We here at Double G Sports wish Spence a nice and speedy recovery.
