Spanish Twitch streamer Ibai Llanos Garatea has broken the world record for viewers previously set by TheGrefg during his boxing event La Velada Del Año II.
Ibai hosted the boxing event, which began Saturday, June 25 at 11:30 a.m. EDT or 8:30 a.m. PDT on his Twitch channel.
With the first fight of the event between Carola and Spursito scheduled to begin at 1:30 p.m. EDT, viewership steadily increased in anticipation of the first bout.
Just before the first fight began, Ibai surpassed TheGrefg’s previous record of 2,468,668 concurrent viewers, with his view count continuing to grow as the event wore on.
Ibai breaks Twitch viewership record
At the time of writing, Ibai surpassed over 2.8 million viewers during the Carola vs Spursito fight with over two hours of fights remaining on the card.
Now that Carola v Spursito’s purchase is coming to an end, Ibai’s stream has reached 2,851,749 viewers and is still growing.
It remains to be seen how high Ibai’s viewership will climb once the event is over, but one thing is certain: Ibai’s new record will certainly be difficult to break.
