Spence Seeking Return in May or June

IBF/WBC welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr. made his first public appearance since suffering injuries in a car accident in October, taking part in an interview prior to the Tony Harrison vs. Jermell Charlo II WBC super welterweight title fight.

Spence said he was unable to remember most of the night of the accident, and he added what he does know he can’t talk about for legal reasons. Spence was charged with a DWI for the incident.

Spence, however, has been feeling well health-wise and is already back to training. He says he will be ready for a return in May or June and wants no tune-up bout, naming WBA (Super) welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao and Danny Garcia as possible opponents.

Garcia was supposed to challenge Spence in January for his titles before the accident.

The car accident came just weeks after Spence defeated Shawn Porter to unify his IBF and Porter’s WBC titles.
