CRASH & LEARN
Errol Spence Jr has vowed to ‘prove everybody wrong’ in his first fight since cheating death in a horror car crash.
The Texan defends his unified WBC and IBF welterweight titles in his hometown this weekend.
The homecoming comes a year after he flipped his Ferrari in a high-speed crash which left him in hospital with horrific facial wounds.
Up until that point, the unbeaten champion had been flawless in his 26-0 career.
So following the crash, he has been motivated to prove any doubters who question his mental or physical state wrong.
Spence, 30, told SunSport: “I’m just focussed to prove everybody wrong and go out there and be victorious.
“Of course I’m hungry because there’s a lot of people doubting me, saying I’ll be a shell of myself, so there’s been an extra umph in this camp.”
