Miraculously, not only did Spence survive he resumed his boxing career a year later.

But the unbeaten Texan still bares the scars of the crash emotionally as he opened up on experiencing post-traumatic stress disorder.

Spence, 32, said on The Good Fight with Kate Abdo: “When I was driving I would have like different flashes of a car running into me.

“Or I’d be at a red light and I’d just have flashes of cars hitting me and getting into car crashes all the time.

“It was when I’m just driving down the street or at a red light or anything.

“PTSD is definitely a real thing because I was having flashes all the time about getting in accidents. I still have them sometimes when I’m driving.”

Spence on the advice of his mother and manager visited a psychiatrist but it only lasted one session.

The current unified welterweight champion went on to reveal a second crash just months later saw his insurance company throw in the towel.

Spence said: “I actually got into another accident three months after my accident. Somebody hit me from behind.

“It shook me up a little bit, but it’s really hard to get to me. I’m always on an even keel. My insurance company kicked me out.

“I was in a G-Wagon, so they were like, ‘He messed up a Ferrari, now a G-Wagon 4×4.’

“They came out at like $600,000 in like five/six months. They paid me outright for both of the cars.”

Spence beat ex-champ Danny Garcia, 34, in his December 2020 comeback bout and secured a super-fight with Manny Pacquiao, 43.

But an eye injury in sparring saw him drop out and replaced by Yordenis Ugas, 35, who subsequently beat and retired PacMan.

It has set Spence up to defend his WBC and IBF titles in a unification with Ugas’ WBA version this Saturday in Dallas.
