“I Got PTSD”: After 3 Near-Death Accidents, Errol Spence Jr. Makes a Confession to Mike Tyson

Errol Spence Jr. has suffered three unfortunate car accidents. In October 2019, Errol Spence Jr. all but survived a horrific car crash as his white Ferrari got out of control and he was flipped out of the vehicle. Although the current unified welterweight champion did not suffer serious injuries, he was hospitalized for almost three weeks. Later, Spence Jr. said the following about the incident: “I don’t remember the night. To tell you the truth, I’ve just seen the video of me flipping down the road“. To add to that, his coach, Derrick James, exclaimed “How fortunate he really was“.

While Spence Jr. was mentally recovering from the 2019 incident, last year, a 14-year-old ran a red light with their parent’s car and hit Errol’s vehicle. Immediately after, Spence Jr. went to Instagram Live and declared how the accident injured his leg.
