World welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr is in a serious condition after being rushed to hospital following a horrific car crash.

The 29-year-old was on his way home from a nightclub when he crashed and flipped his white Ferrari at around 3am close to the I-30 in Dallas.

The impact of the crash is said to have thrown him out of the car along the Riverfront Boulivard, and he is not believed to have been wearing a seatbelt.
