Can you do me a quick favor, internet stranger? Remind me to pray to the God Errol Spence Jr. prays to because that’s the God that will allow a man to escape a sure death. K thanks!
The IBF and WBC welterweight boxing champion is reportedly in the intensive care unit and in ‘serious condition‘ at Methodist Dallas Medical Center after being involved in a scary one-car accident in Dallas at 3 am this morning.
The 29-year-old, who is 26-0 in his professional career, was not wearing a seatbelt his white Ferrari veered over the center median and flipped multiple times while going at high speeds.
A slowed down version of the crash:
Here is a depressing video of two drivers slowly driving through the wreckage while Spence lay on the ground after being ejected from the car.
The car was damn vertical at one point:
Spence is said to have suffered serious, but non life-threatening injuries, which is about as ideal as you could hope for in this situation.
Premier Boxing Champions spokesman Tim Smith told ESPN: “The doctors are monitoring his condition, but his injuries are not life-threatening. We will have further updates as the doctors update his condition. We’re all wishing the best for Errol.”
Update: critical condition for broken teeth? Hmm?
The boxer’s last fight was a September 28th split decision victory over Shawn Porter, who took to Twitter to wish his opponent well.
