Errol Spence Jr expected to make full recovery after car crash

Unified welterweight champion Errol Spence in stable condition after being involved in a rollover crash early Thursday morning. Miles reports that Spence suffered broken teeth in the accident, but otherwise figures to make a complete recovery.

Another, longer video shows the aftermath of the crash in the distance as several cars meander through the wreckage and by Spence's injured body, the latter of which is not entirely visible.

At some point during the accident, Spence was ejected from the vehicle.

Spence is the undefeated welterweight boxing world champ.

Erroll Spence the ring after he defeated Shawn Porter in their IBF & WBC World Welterweight Championship fight.

With his rangy athleticism and virtuosic skill, Spence, who is 26-0 with 21 knockouts, has captured fans with a series of crisp victories in recent years.

A lot of messages of support to Errol Spence Jr. have been sent on social media.

"My dad always tells me 'this boxing thing is a part of your life but it's not going to last forever. His parents are with him at the hospital", Tim Smith, a spokesman for Spence's promotor, Premier Boxing Champions, told The Associated Press.

"His injuries are not life-threatening".

Both of those fighters extended their best wishes to Spence when the news broke of his accident. The superstar fighter is considered to be one of the best pound-for-pound boxers in the world and with this vehicle crash in mind, it's hard to say what could become of his career. We can have extra updates because the docs change his situation. "We'll update everyone when we have more to share".

Images of the crash show the Ferrari in a wrecked condition, with the front and back of the auto completely smashed in.
