Boxing superstar Errol Spence has officially announced he’s returning to the ring — just one year after he almost died in a horrific late-night Ferrari crash.
Spence (26-0) confirmed he will face Danny Garcia (36-2) on Dec. 5 at AT&T Stadium in Dallas — marking an incredible comeback from a terrible accident.
As we previously reported, Spence was hospitalized after he lost control of his Ferrari during a late-night drive in the Dallas area in Oct. 2019.
Cops say Spence’s car went over the center median and flipped at least 5 times. Spence, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was ejected from the car and suffered serious injuries.
The accident was captured on surveillance video — and man, it’s a miracle Spence wasn’t killed.
Some thought there was a very real chance Spence would never fight again. But, he’s proving the doubters wrong — announcing on social media Thursday, “I’m back!”
Spence — the unified welterweight champ — is widely regarded as one of the best fighters in the sport with victories over guys like Shawn Porter, Mikey Garcia and Kell Brook.
It’s also a huge fight for Garcia — who’s trying to re-establish himself as one of the best in the world after high-profile losses to Keith Thurman and Shawn Porter.
Should be a good one!! Welcome back, Errol.
