Terence Crawford, Errol Spence spar on Twitter over potential unification fight

Terence Crawford poses on the scale during his official weigh-in at MGM Grand Garden Arena

Who is the undisputed best welterweight in boxing? There is one way of finding out and that’s having WBO champion Terence Crawford fight WBC and IBF titleholder Errol Spence Jr.

Ever since Crawford moved up and became WBO welterweight champion in the summer of 2018, fans have been craving for a title unification fight with Spence. The problem, as is usually the case in boxing, is getting the fight made.

Crawford is with Top Rank and ESPN. Spence is with PBC on Fox. Therefore, there’s already an obstacle in getting all parties to agree to a deal, especially when it comes to revenue share and TV distribution.

But Crawford doesn’t see it that way. He feels if Spence really wanted the fight, he’d have asked for it by now and told PBC to make it happen.

Spence had a response of his own.

In the end, they both agreed that a title unification fight would happen in the future.

It’s clear that both fighters want the fight. The boxing world wants the fight as well. And it would certainly be a shame if fans didn’t get to see two of the best pound-for-pound and undefeated boxers collide in their prime.

Hopefully, ESPN and PBC can work together in making a potential title unification bout come to fruition in 2020.
