WBO champion Terence Crawford has been involved in a public back-and-forth with Spence concerning a potential unification bout, but he sent his best wishes on Thursday. According to a report from CBS 11 in Dallas-Fort Worth, welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr. has been seriously injured in a rollover auto crash in Dallas.
Boxing champion Errol Spence Jr. was ejected from a Ferrari in a crash in Dallas early Thursday, according to police.
There is an active investigation to determine, if alcohol or drugs were a factor in the crash. He holds a professional record of 26-0 with 21 knockouts and is the IBF and WBC welterweight champion.
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 auto.
He was alone in the vehicle at the time of the crash, and no other person was involved in the accident. "Exclusive video from a nearby security camera shows the crash that injured Championship Boxer Errol Spence Jr when he lost control of his Ferrari and it rolled multiple times ejecting him".
He beat Kell Brook in May 2017 to take the Englishman's his IBF crown following an 11th-round stoppage at Bramall Lane. "You still have a lot of life to live after that, '" Spence tweeted.
It is unknown if the fight will still be taking place on the scheduled date. We are hoping for a speedy recovery for the boxer.
