An undefeated world champion boxer suffered serious injuries after crashing his Ferrari overnight Thursday near downtown Dallas, according to police.
Police described the driver as being “high profile” but sources told CBS 11 that Errol Spence Jr. was driving the car. The 29-year-old boxer holds a 26-0 record and two welterweight world titles and made his professional debut in November 2012. He competed in the Olympics that year but lost to Russian Andrey Zamkovoy.
Police said the sports car was speeding along South Riverfront Boulevard around 3 a.m. when it went over the median and flipped multiple times, CBS reported. The driver, who police said was not wearing a seatbelt, was ejected. He was taken to the hospital in serious condition but is expected to survive.
