Unified welterweight boxing champion Errol Spence Jr. was involved in a major car accident on Saturday night – his second since 2019 – but avoided serious injury. The 32-year-old Texan released a self-recorded video following the crash, in which he claims he was hit head-on by a 14-year-old who took his parents’ car without permission or a driver’s license . . It’s unclear whether the crumpled car in the photo belongs to Spence or the other driver
At this time, some voices could be heard in the background, prompting a response from the undefeated Spence.
“Dude, shut up,” Spence said. “It does not matter.”
Spence then appeared to reference his one-car wreck in 2019, when he was thrown from his Ferrari after drinking and neglecting to fasten his seatbelt.
“It always happens to me,” said Spence, who was hospitalized for six days and suffered from post-traumatic stress, while managing to avoid any broken bones in the 2019 wreck.
Spence does not appear to have been injured in Saturday’s accident apart from a sore leg

As Spence told DailyMail.com in April, that accident served as a wake-up call, and he’s since bought a ranch in the Dallas area, where he, his twin daughters and son now enjoy country life. .
Details of Saturday’s accident were not released, but Spence appeared to be fine in his self-shot Instagram video.
But that doesn’t mean he was in a good mood.
“Thank goodness I didn’t have my kids on board,” Spence said. ‘S*** I ain’t worried about no damn car. Motherfucker hit me. I kicked my leg up. It’s crazy.’
It is also unclear what Spence was driving, although he claimed his car was “bulletproof”, “heavy as hell” and “all metal”.
Spence doesn’t remember the 2019 accident, but has many haunting memories, including this photo of his facial lacerations

Spence was driving “at a high speed” before his sinking in 2019, police say. He was later charged with DWI
The most aggravating part for Spence was his belief that the other driver was underage and driving without a license.
“This n***** is 14 and took his parents’ car without them knowing,” one of Spence’s acquaintances said off-screen. “He doesn’t have a god**** driver’s license.”
Spence couldn’t believe it.
“It’s crazy,” he said. “The kid who hit me is 14 years old.
“He was going as fast as s****, but my car is bulletproof.”
The crash happened ahead of Terence Crawford’s Saturday fight against David Avanesyan, which boxing fans hope will be a prelude to a highly anticipated Spence-Crawford fight.
The two unbeaten rivals have yet to meet, despite years of chatter and contentious contract negotiations. They were supposed to fight in November, but Crawford said if they did meet, it would likely happen in 2023.
DailyMail.com has contacted Premier Boxing Champions for further information on the crash.
