I would never drive a convertible. Poor performance and terrible safety just to satisfy your vanity?

If you flip over with the roof down, then you are usually dead, or mangled, even at low speeds. He seems like he has been very lucky to fly clear of the car.

It was a "hard top" convertible, though, which means you basically have a thick roll bar protecting you.

- Unless you're stupid enough to not be wearing your safety harness.

Thanks to him, it took me forever to get home last night...fucker
That's funny. I still commute to school, but it takes me an hour now. When you have car crashes at this certain merging lane, it's adds about 45 minutes to the commute. Backs up traffic insanely bad because it goes from 2 lanes to one lane, and at the peak of the mornings, it's ridiculous. Maddening when there are car crashes, and holy shit, people are super retards!

He should know better, throwing away millions to bullshit around and cock blocking. My girl fell asleep and wouldn't let me slide in those guts since it was so late

Just woke up and found out 5 mins ago. Ejected from the Ferrari, no seatbelt, and the vehicle flipped five times. I could tell for some time that he's been sipping his own Kool aid and just not that responsible. Drunk ringside and hanging out with that loser Broner ringside and at the club.

His career is over and he shouldn't come back, but I can see him coming back if he gets cleared and getting some TKO losses. I really hope he doesn't try to make a comeback.
:rofl

My bad. I thought it was a Targa like the GTS, but it appears to be a 488 Spider:

So yeah a true convertible, though still with a roll bar over each seat.

Even with the roll bars, they are just so much more dangerous. Your basically more exposed to trauma and abrasion.

I have heard too many horror stories from doctors about convertibles to ever drive one now. Although, that might also be because I am becoming more safety conscious with age and responsibility.

The performance and handling of a soft top is usually much worse too. Although I imagine Spence's Ferrari handles better than any of the junk I have ever driven.

Round and about
One thing I always like about Errol is his self assuredness and total self belief. I wonder if when he gets back in the ring he'll be even more confident than ever knowing he's literally unkillable.

LOL.

His new nickname: "Errol Unbreakable Spence."

Apparently he has suffered some broken teeth, apart from that and the reported facial lacerations he's all good and will full recover.

Likely to face a DUI charge though.
I suspected DUI from the beginning. As most probably would have.

Probably highlights why being in good shape is important. Especially if you want to do dumb shit like speeding, while drunk in and open top car.

Had Spence not been physically fit with good muscle mass etc could have been a lot worse.

A regular bloke like me probably would have been brown bread. I better get my ass to the gym!
