For those thinking that either guy was not interested in the fight, think again. Both boxers have met for the first time in person and posted the below video online of the meeting.
Welterweight world champions Terence Crawford and Errol Spence are considered by many to be two of the best fighters in the world pound for pound.
Or at least in most people’s top five-pound for pound list.

This looks like it’s going to build for a while but the two judging from this video most certainly seem interested in the bout:
