Welterweight champion Errol "The Truth" Spence Jr. is in intensive care after crashing his Ferrari in Dallas early Thursday (October 10) morning. Spence was speeding when he lost control of the sportscar and crossed the median into oncoming traffic. The Ferrari flipped over multiple times and he was ejected from the vehicle because he was not wearing a seatbelt.
"His injuries are not life-threatening. His parents are with him at the hospital," Tim Smith, a spokesman for Spence's promoter, Premier Boxing Champions, told the Associated Press.
Investigators are trying to determine what caused Spence to lose control, and it is unknown if alcohol was a factor in the crash.
Spence holds both the WBC and IBF welterweight titles and is 26-0 with 21 knockouts in his career.
