Great news … Errol Spence is “awake and responding” after his terrifying Ferrari crash — and somehow managed to escape with no broken bones!

We spoke with Errol’s rep who gave TMZ Sports the following statement …

“Spence is awake and responding and is listed in stable condition. He didn’t sustain any broken bones or fractures, but does have some facial lacerations. He is expected to make a full recovery.”

“He is currently resting with his family by his side. They want to thank everyone for their prayers and well wishes and are extremely grateful to the Dallas first responders who rush to the scene to attend to Errol after the accident and the doctors who are taking care of him at the hospital.”

Surveillance cameras captured video of the crash, showing the Ferrari wildly flipping several times. There’s a moment where it appears you can see Spence being ejected from the car.

The video, obtained by CBS 11 in Dallas, was shot at 2:46 AM. CBS 11 reporter J.D. Miles says Spence has several broken teeth, but is expected to recover.

Spence reportedly could face a DWI charge based on the investigation into the accident.

Dallas Cowboys’ Jason Garrett — the head coach of Errol’s favorite football team — told reporters Wednesday he and the team are sending prayers the boxer’s way after learning of the accident.

“Obviously, everyone’s thinking about him,” Garrett said. “Heard the news this morning and he’s certainly been a great champion and our thoughts and prayers are with him.”

Errol’s most recent opponent, Shawn Porter, is sending his love to Spence and his family — telling TMZ Sports their professional rivalry comes second, Errol’s health is the priority.

TMZ spoke with Porter moments ago, who says he’s been hearing POSITIVE things about Errol’s health after the crash and is hopeful he’ll recover.

In the meantime, he wants Errol to know he’s rooting for the boxer and hopes he gets well soon.

We also spoke with boxing legend Roy Jones Jr. who made a special video for Spence. Long story short, the boxing community is rallying around the 29-year-old.

Boxing superstar Errol Spence — one of the top pound-for-pound fighters in the world — is badly injured and being treated in an Intensive Care Unit in Dallas after crashing a white Ferrari early Thursday morning.

The 29-year-old was driving on Riverfront Blvd. around 3 AM at a high rate of speed, according to cops, when the car went over the center median and flipped at least 5 times.

Spence, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was ejected from the car and suffered serious injuries, officials say. You can see in the photos, obtained by FOX 4, it doesn’t appear the vehicle has a roof.

Spence was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment. Police say he’s expected to survive.

The Dallas Police Dept. raced to the scene. Several officers were seen investigating the crash. It’s unclear at this point if they believe alcohol was a factor.

Spence’s love of fast, exotic cars is well documented. For years, he’s posted pics on social media with supercars that look similar to the one in the crash.

Spence — who’s from DeSoto, Texas — just defeated Shawn Porter in a super high-profile welterweight title fight on Sept. 28 at Staples Center. Some people have called it the fight of the year.

Errol is the current IBF and WBC welterweight champ. He’s 26-0 as a pro fighter with high-profile victories over guys like Mikey Garcia, Kell Brook and Chris Algieri.

    His most amazing grace shined on the kid. A very rare time it may have been good, to not be wearing a seat belt. It will be interesting to see how this event affects his future bouts. Will he be even tougher having endured this? Or wil his opponents be confident he is damaged goods? God Bless!

    • I’d say it will make him a more fierce fighter. He will be shaken up by this life scare and having 2 young kids,he’ll probably be humbled and more responsible. I think that will make him more focused and resourceful. No broken bones or fractures, just lacerations. How could he be damaged goods? He’s a tough minded fighter to begin with.

  9. It’s amazing how the wreck appeared to be behind ropes in a boxing ring!! I knew he would rise again! That was a sign that he’s a great fighter!!🥊
