Whatever Errol Spence makes of the rest of his life and boxing career is a gift after wrecking his Ferrari at high speed at 3 a.m. Thursday in Downtown Dallas. Spence flipped the car five times without a seatbelt, was ejected, and somehow came away without a single broken or fractured bone. It’s likely that his boxing career will continue without much of a hitch.
Our expert analysts, Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid, and John J. Raspanti examine Spence’s second chance at life, and also give mixed reviews to Oleksandr Usyk’s much-anticipated heavyweight debut — a victory over Chazz Witherspoon, and discuss Tyson Fury’s upcoming publicity stunt against a 380-pound WWE wrestler.
We also bid farewell to a friend, Eloy Perez, who was the WBO’s No. 1-ranked super featherweight before a cocaine habit sent his life into a tailspin. “The Prince” was 32 when he died Saturday under suspicious circumstances.
And we bring it home with a spectacular interview with 1970s legend Carlos Palomino, an International Boxing Hall of Famer who reigned as the WBC welterweight champion for more than 2 1/2 years. “King Carlos” fought memorable wars with Armando Muniz, Hedgemon Lewis, Wilfredo Benitez, Roberto Duran, Dave “Boy” Green, and Wilfredo Rivera.
This is a story-filled hour with a true icon of one of boxing’s true renaissance eras.
