Errol Spence Jr shows off horrific facial injuries in hospital bed year after near-fatal high-speed car crash

ERROL SPENCE JR released images revealing the horrific facial injuries he suffered after his near-fatal high-speed car crash last year.

The unified welterweight champion's Ferrari flipped while he was allegedly not wearing a seatbelt 12 months ago.

The fighter was charged with DWI (driving while intoxicated) by the Dallas Police Department after being released from hospital.

The unbeaten boxer uploaded pictures of his battered car and himself in a hospital bed covered with scratches, bruises and swelling.

He captioned the Instagram post: "A Year today…I don’t know how or why I got saved but thank God the thought of leaving my lil girls & them growing up without me still f*** with me but I’m triple blessed & must be here for a reason…"

The 30-year-old was initially blasted after boasting that he was a 'savage' for surviving the crash. 

But six months later, Spence opened up about how the near miss changed his perspective on life, and admitted he is lucky to still be alive.

The crash prevented ex-champion Danny Garcia from challenging for the 147lb titles with the pair originally set to fight in January.

After recovering, Spence was lined up to defend his WBC and IBF titles against Garcia in late November.

But now, the champion will now receive a homecoming as the fight was moved a month to accommodate limited fans.

Texan Spence will face Garcia on December 5 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington – home of the Dallas Cowboys.

The DeSoto native defeated Mikey Garcia in the same venue in front of more than 47,000 fans in March 2019.

Spence said: "It means even more because I'm going up against a great champion in Danny Garcia.

"I know people are looking out to see if I've lost a step or won't be at my best, but I'm 100 per cent focused and everything is on point in training camp.

"I just can't wait to go out there and put on a show."

Spence is undefeated as a pro, having won all 26 of his fights – 21 by KO – and most recently beat fellow American Shawn Porter by split decision in a Fight of The Year contender.
