Main Events and Showtime's Espinoza trade words on Twitter over Stevenson-Kovalev ordeal

Stephen Espinoza and the folks at Main Event had themselves a bit of a "Twitter battle" last night on the issue of Adonis Stevenson, Sergey Kovalev, and Al Haymon.

Kathy Duva of Main Events was not shy about sharing her feelings on Adonis Stevenson and his advisor Al Haymon "ducking" her fighter, Sergey Kovalev, by signing a new deal with Showtime Sports, likely with the intent to face Bernard Hopkins at some point this year, and leading off with Stevenson's May 24 fight against Andrzej Fonfara.

Last night, Main Events and Showtime Sports boss Stephen Espinoza got into a bit of a verbal spat via Twitter, which started when Espinoza made a somewhat smarmy comment in response to being asked if Stevenson-Kovalev was a dead issue:

Main Events were quick to respond:

Espinoza had been challenged to a verbal duel with that tweet. He obliged:

Main Events did not back down!

Espinoza called out the Golden Boy/Mayweather bit, pointing out that Stevenson is with neither party:

And then Main Events went for the wide open comeback, noting the man that may (or may not) be really running this entire show:

It's all just empty back-and-forth that ultimately means little, but it's nice to see Main Events and Espinoza address this publicly. And by "nice" I mean mostly humorous for us, and probably maddening for the Main Events side, and possibly humorous for Espinoza, though I don't know, I'm not his BFF, I'm just a guy looking at Twitter same as any of you folk out there in TV Land, or wherever you are right now.
