The WBC and IBF welterweight champion last fought in September, beating Shawn Porter by a narrow points verdict.

But a month later the 30-year-old flipped his Ferrari, somehow coming out unscathed, although he was hit with a DWI (Driving While Intoxicated).

Spence vowed to change ways as he was “headed down path of destruction” and wanted to return in the summer.

But amid the coronavirus pandemic, his comeback has been postponed until the end of the year, according to The Athletic.

The welterweight pair have agreed to a pay-per-view headliner in the States, which is targeted for November.

But with fans targeted for the fight, it could be pushed back depending on Covid-19 guidelines for live crowds.

Spence was set to defend his 147lb titles against the former WBC champion in January, until his life-threatening car crash.

His trainer Kevin James insisted the unbeaten champion is in no need of a warm up bout ahead of his first fight since returning from injury.

James told FightHype: “Everybody’s been off now, nobody’s been fighting. So he’ll get a fight, and whoever it is, I don’t think it matters.

“They’re all great fighters. I just think it’s all about strategy, it’s all about game plan. That’s what it is for every fight.

“Everybody knows what they can’t do in a fight, what their inadequacies are.”
