Maybe you haven’t heard yet, but Ibai Llanos has once again made history on Twitch with the boxing event he organizes every year since 2021. . The streamer known for organizing major events for the Spanish-speaking community and being part of the Kings League, among many other reasons to know who he is, has broken his own record.

In 2022, La Velada del Año 2 surprised with its 3.3 million viewers at the same time towards the end of the event, a milestone in the career of Ibai Llanos and in the history of Twitch, but above all, a triumph for the entire Spanish-speaking community. The Velada del Año 3, which was held at the Civitas Metropolitano stadium in Madrid, has garnered 3.4 million viewers practically before the fights began and before Ibai Llanos himself said a single word.

However, Reven, one of his teammates and winner of one of the fights of the first Velada del Año, asked all the spectators in the stadium to enter the live broadcast from their cell phones, since the views on the platform do not work the same way as on television. This action caused the number of viewers to increase dramatically. After this, numerous users who were trying to enter Twitch at the time reported that they were unable to do so, which suggests that the platform was having difficulty supporting such an influx of users at the same time, a situation that lasted for several minutes.

It should be taken into account that these figures are simultaneous audience peaks at a specific moment of the broadcast, not the total audience of the broadcast.

In any case, Ibai Llanos is not the only Spaniard who is part of the most watched live broadcasts in history.
