TERENCE CRAWFORD and Danny Garcia were involved in a heated exchange on social media, resulting in the unified super-lightweight boss offering to move up to welterweight to take on the reigning WBC champion.

Last month, Crawford dominated Viktor Postol to add the WBC 140lb title to his WBO strap, though the fight did not draw many pay-per-view buys in America.

When Garcia was the WBC super-lightweight champion, he paid mandatory challenger Postol a step-aside fee and the pair never fought. Postol then picked up the vacant title when he beat Lucas Matthysse after Garcia moved to welterweight, where he also won the WBC title.
