Dez Bryant live-tweets Errol Spence's welterweight title fight

It's common to see athletes from different sports cheering each other on, especially if they're from the same state -- or same town.

Such is the case for Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant and the new IBF welterweight champion, Errol Spence.

As Spence was fighting overseas on Saturday, Bryant was in the U.S., tweeting diligently about the match as it unfolded. Bryant and Spence both live in the Dallas suburb of DeSoto, and Bryant made sure to show his support for his "neighbor."

Spence competed for the title against the reigning champ, Kell Brook. The fight took place on Brook's home soil in Sheffield, England. Spence defeated Brook with an 11th-round TKO. Brook had held the title since 2014.
