    Following such a devastating collision, Errol Spence Jr could have been excused for wanting an easier route back to the ring.

    But instead, the defiant southpaw – feeling he has something to prove – wanted only to face the best.

    So now his fight against Danny Garcia – which was set for January until the crash – will be his first since escaping death.

    And it was a request he specifically asked his advisor Al Haymon at PBC to approve.

    Spence told SunSport: "Fighting a lesser opponent that I know I can beat, I don't think it would have me 100 per cent focussed like Danny Garcia has got me.

    "I basically told my manager Al Haymon, 'I'm a shark, don't put me in the pool with tuna's and seabass. Put me in the tank with other sharks'.

    "I want to be in there with a shark, so we chose Danny Garcia."

    Keith Thurman  has given Errol Spence Jr the edge against Danny Garcia – and says 'the time is now' to face the Texan afterwards.

    Spence defends his unified welterweight titles against former champion Garcia, his first fight since surviving a horror car crash.

    But Thurman, 32, has backed his rival to shake off any ring rust to retain his belt and will be ready waiting to finally settle their score afterwards.

    He told SunSport: "I definitely give Errol the edge, I think he has the better boxing pedigree, being a former Olympian.

    "I do think it's time to see out The Truth. If he gets past this fight I would love to be in the ring with Errol.

    "I think it's a fight fans have been wanting to see for years, and I think the time is now as long as he stays at 147.

    "He's fighting all my competition. He's fighting Danny – I beat Danny – he fought Shawn Porter – I already beat Shawn Porter.

    "A lot of injuries have gone by but that's done. I'm ready. You want it, let's get it."

    After coming out of treatment, Spence had only one thing on his mind – returning to the gym.

    And despite avoiding sparring for the first few months due to a swollen jaw, the rejuvenated American claims to have been unaffected during training.

    He said: “There’s been no injuries as far as post-car accident or anything like that.

    “As for as anything else, everything has been the same, I’ve been checked out by the doctors.

    “With this fight it’s kept me focussed, staying hungry and staying in the gym and dedicated.

    “I went back to the drawing board and focussing on the things that got me where I am now, training camp’s been going great.”

    Errol Spence Jr has vowed to 'prove everybody wrong' in his first fight since cheating death in a horror car crash.

    The Texan defends his unified WBC and IBF welterweight titles in his hometown this weekend.

    The homecoming comes a year after he flipped his Ferrari in a high-speed crash which left him in hospital with horrific facial wounds.

    Up until that point, the unbeaten champion had been flawless in his 26-0 career.

    So following the crash, he has been motivated to prove any doubters who question his mental or physical state wrong.

    Spence, 30, told SunSport: "I'm just focussed to prove everybody wrong and go out there and be victorious. 

    "Of course I'm hungry because there's a lot of people doubting me, saying I'll be a shell of myself, so there's been an extra umph in this camp."
