Boxing champ Errol Spence Jr. seriously injured in Ferrari crash, reports say

Boxing champion Errol Spence Jr. was reportedly seriously injured in a car crash in Dallas on Thursday.

Dallas police said a “high-profile man” was the victim of a car crash in the city’s downtown. Photos on social media showed the man’s white Ferrari completely destroyed stemming from the crash.

Spencer was reportedly ejected in the rollover crash and transported to the hospital and was expected to survive.

Spence recently won the WBC welterweight title in a split-decision victory over Shawn Porter late last month.

Spence moved to 26-0 with the victory.

“This is a lifetime dream,” he said after the Sept. 28 bout. “It shows hard work pays off. … Shawn Porter is a rough and awkward fighter. I didn’t get off what I wanted to. He’s a true champion. He made it tough … (but) all my punches have bad intentions.”
