Errol Spence Jr. is in stable condition and recovering
It appears Errol Spence Jr.’s prognosis is positive on the WBC/IBF welterweight beltholder Thursday afternoon at Methodist Hospital in Dallas, according to a release issued by PBC.
The release stated in part: “Spence is awake and responding and his condition is listed as stable. He did not sustain any broken bones or fractures, but has some facial lacerations. He is expected to make a full recovery.
“He is currently resting with his family by his side. They want to thank everyone for their prayers and well wishes and are extremely grateful to the Dallas first responders who rushed to the scene to attend to Errol after the accident and the doctors who are taking care of him at the hospital.”
No timetable has been placed on his recovery.
Spence was involved in a serious car accident, according to various reports, at around 2:53 a.m. on Thursday morning, when he was reportedly driving at speed in his white Ferrari when he crossed over the median and flipped several times. Spence, however, was not wearing a seatbelt and was jettisoned from the car, possibly saving his life. His injuries came from landing after being tossed from the car.
