What was the broadcast about?

The live stream was done from a boxing ring, which was hosted by Ibai Llanos. Along with Llanos, multiple commenters, competitors, and even staffers were present for this match. This live stream got 1,538,645 concurrent viewers, along with an average of a million viewers.

The data was calculated by Twitchmetrics for a four-hour stream. All of these digits now put Ibai right behind David “TheGrefg” Martinez having the most concurrent viewers. Until last month, Ibai had 73,000 viewers. These viewers were mostly through variety streaming.
