Will Errol Spence ever fight again?
By Allan Fox: There are rumors that Errol Spence’s condition isn’t what was previously stated following his terrible single-vehicle car crash last month on October 10 in Dallas, Texas. Spence wasn’t wearing his seat-belt and was ejected from his vehicle on impact as it tumbled, leaving it a pile of wreckage.
Given how badly damaged Spence’s car was, it’s difficult for fans to believe he escaped the accident without sustaining injuries.
Intensive care units are for patients with life-threatening injuries or illnesses. For Spence to have been in the ICU for six days, that tells you that he likely didn’t suffer just a scratch in the car accident.
It was rumored after the crash that Spence had a broken tooth. If true, is this reason enough for Spence not to be seen in public or to be giving interviews on the phone?
Spence was hospitalized in Dallas after his Ferrari 488 Spider flipped several times during the car crash at 2:53 AM on the 10th of October. He was later charged with a DWI.
What are the odds of Spence escaping major career-ending injuries in a car crash like the one he experienced? It’s hard to imagine anyone getting out of a car accident like the one Spence had without getting badly hurt.
Fans haven’t seen or heard from Spence since the car accident, other than a post on Instagram in which he said, “No broken bones I’m a savage!!” The post was quickly deleted by Spence or whoever controls his Instagram account.
It’s believed by some that the injuries Spence sustained in his car accident were enough to put his chances of returning to boxing as unlikely. Spence not giving any public interviews or having photos of himself to be viewed by his boxing fans has caused a lot of people to assume the worst. That his injuries are bad enough to put his boxing career in jeopardy.
Looking at video of Spence’s crash, it’s a miracle that he survived it at all. The impact of Spence’s car crash was like a bomb going off.
If Spence is unable to ever come back from the crash, it’ll be sad news to hear. We’ve seen great boxers in the past lose their lives in car accidents, and unable to fight again. Spence is on the cusp of super stardom in having recently beaten WBC welterweight champion Shawn Porter to become a two belt champion at 147.
The next move for Spence was him defending his 2 titles against Danny Garcia in January, and then potentially facing WBA champion Manny Pacquiao or WBO belt holder Terence Crawford in a unification match. All those plans are on hold now in the aftermath of Spence’s car crash.
