With welterweight titleholder Errol Spence back on social media creating a little buzz, saying he’s not one to duck any fighter, fellow welterweight champion Terence Crawford quickly chimed-in to call out Spence, urging him to pressure his team into making the much anticipation title unification happen.

Spence would again chirp back to tell Crawford that a fight between them isn’t going to be made via Twitter. Eventually Crawford would post a message saying that Spence is generally a good guy and that they both can agree that a fight between them will eventually happen.

In the meanwhile it remains to be seen when exactly Spence will return to the ring following his horrific car accident. Spence was obviously extremely fortunate to walk away from that crash with only relatively minor injuries, but there are at least some questions as to how he’ll look inside of the ring after that wreck. Crawford, on the other hand, appears to be in a pretty desperate position to find an opponent that will really draw the interest of boxing fans.
