IBF and WBC welterweight boxing champ Errol Spence Jr. is currently in intensive care after the 29-year-old was ejected from the seat of a white Ferrari during a devastating collision at around 3 AM on Thursday morning. It’s believed the car doesn’t have a roof and that Spence was driving without a seat belt.

Per TMZ Sports, the sports car flipped at least five times after hitting the center median on Riverfront Blvd. in Dallas Texas, where Spence is currently being treated. Police have reason to believe the undefeated boxing star was driving at a high speed.

Although Spence is in serious condition and being treated for a severe injuries, police expect the New York-born fighter to survive.

Spence, who sports a professional record of 26-0, last fought in the boxing ring on September 28, when he defeated Shawn Porter to win the WBC welterweight title at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
