Spence Grateful For “Miracle”
For the first time since the car wreck that nearly took his life, Errol Spence Jr is in the public eye.
Spence was inside the Toyota Arena on Saturday night watching as his friend and training partner Jermell Charlo regained his WBC super welterweight championship from Tony Harrison and feels divine intervention is why he is still here.
“I’ve been home safe with my family. I’ve been enjoying my time away from boxing,” Spence (26-0, 21KOs) told Fox Sports’ Brian Kenny. “My whole body was sore, it was just a miracle from God. Anybody else would have been killed.
“It was just a blessing from God and I’m looking forward to returning to boxing… next year.”
Spence is unable to discuss the October accident that involved him driving over a median and spending six days in the ICU ward of a Dallas area hospital, due to the fact that it is an active legal matter as he was charged with a DWI.
“I’m fighting around May or June. I already started training,” revealed Spence. “I hit the mitts. I’m feeling real good and ready to come back.
“I feel good. I’ve been working with my coach and everything like that. I’ve been running. I feel good. I didn’t feel sore or anything. Like I said, it’s a miracle from God that I didn’t have anything serious that would leave me out of the ring for a year or two. I feel real gracious.”
