ERROL SPENCE JR’S team insist the boxing star will make a “full recovery” after being involved in a horror car crash.
The American, 29, was thrown out of his Ferrari in Dallas when he flipped the supercar while not wearing a seat belt.
He was taken to hospital where he was treated but thankfully suffered no broken bones.
And Spence Jr’s representatives provided a positive update.
In a statement, they said: “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.”
The mangled wreck of a vehicle was towed away and a police statement said: “At 2:53am a Ferrari travelling at a high rate of speed northbound in the 500 S. Riverfront Blvd.
“The Ferrari veered left over the centre median onto the southbound lanes and flipped multiple times ejecting the driver who was not wearing a seat belt. The cause of the accident is undetermined at this time.”
Spence Jr is undefeated as a pro, winning all 26 of his fights, 21 by KO, and is the reigning IBF and WBC welterweight world champ.
His most recent scrap was against fellow American Shawn Porter, which he won by split decision on September 28.
It was regarded as one of the fights of the year.
Spence Jr famously battered former British world champ Kell Brook in May 2017, stopping the Sheffield man in the 11th round.
And Brook was quick to send a message of support to his old rival with a post on Twitter.
