The Spanish content creator teased his Twitter followers by betting against himself right from the get-go. “If today we hit some time during the stream one million viewers, I pledge to organize another Velada on 26th May 2022 and fight myself”, he tweeted.
Less than an hour in, the stream surpassed the one million concurrent viewers milestone, making Ibai the second highest peak in concurrent viewers stream holder in Twitch history and turning the 26-year-old into a boxer in one year's time.(Picture: Twitch)
