This will be the second edition of The eveningwhich was held for the first time in the middle of last year: “The first one arose unexpectedlyI lived with a friend here at home (Reven, streamer of Twitch) and he had a kind of “hot spot” with El Millor… they had their little things and based on that “hot spot” arose The eveningwhere we include other fights ”.

In total there were three fights that made history in the world of streaming: “It was much more successful than expected. A stream so great related to the world of boxing, which is something unusual because it is a very tough sport, it had an acceptance that makes no sense. Was the streaming most watched in the history of Twitch. It was crazy”.

The maximum peak that afternoon reached over 1.5 million viewers live (1,080,107 on average in the 4 hours it lasted) and during the event Ibai, who acted as a commentator, promised that if it exceeded one million he himself was going to get into the ring in the next edition.

“I promised to get on but I’m a real wretch and I couldn’t focus on the sport as I wanted (smile). I realized that in order to get into the ring, training under the tutelage of the boxers in Spain, you have to make a great effort. I would have to sacrifice many hours of my life. To get into the ring you have to train both in the morning, in the afternoon and even at night… I realized that I was in shit and that I wasn’t prepared”, laments the streamer Basque, who at the same time ensures that for the third edition will be inside the ring.

“I think this thing that started in 2021 should end with me fighting at some point and it is a process that makes me very excited. My intention is to be prepared for The Evening 3″, he states, before receiving another bet from Infobae in the case of reaching 2 million viewers.

“I prefer not to make bets anymore viewers and enjoy the moment (he jokes), that people see it and enjoy it. But a rival that would suit me, for a matter of physique, is Ronaldo Nazario”, remark. “It would be a historic fight, although I don’t know if he is going to want to get involved in this, but well… life takes many turns and we have a very good relationship,” he acknowledges as he throws the first stone.

The event will feature the participation of several Argentine artists such as Duki, Bizarrap and Nicki Nicole, although the presence in the enclosure of Lionel Messi continues being an incognito (still in Spain on vacation) with whom he also maintains a very good relationship.

“The times I was with Leo I felt very loved by himso much online as in person. Whenever I talk to him about something, I feel that he is a person who respects what we do a lot and has a good time even when we get together with Coscu or the rest to do something in Only Tok or whatever. I think we have affection for each other and I notice it on the networks or when we talkis very interested in what we do and is aware that we entertain many kids in a healthy way”, he says.

Without imagining it, Ibai It was part of two historical moments in the life of the Argentine star. First, of Barcelona’s farewell and after his arrival at Paris Saint Germain as a special guest at the Parc des Princes.

“Previously we had spoken and he was happy, while I was very nervous. I felt that I was dreaming and that there was no meaning to what I was experiencing. It was all very strange, it was like being in a totally distorted reality, that what I was experiencing was not real. I wanted to assess in what two historical moments of Leo had been. For me it was something that when I am 94 years old I will still remember, ”she stresses.

Like any important evening, the event will have a red carpet through which various protagonists from the world of streamingand between them The presence of Sergio Agüero is not ruled out eitherwho after his unexpected retirement from professional football decided to venture fully into this new facet.

“Al Kun de .” Streamer I see it very well, it’s something he’s genuinely good at. He was born to be a footballer and also to be streamerwhich is something he didn’t know. He can stream any kind of matches. It will be closely related to the World Cup that is coming soonand either for that, or for a style like the Copa América, the When It is valid for everything: to talk about the event, comment on it, analyze it, the post-match, the previous one”.

Regarding the rapid acceptance it had in the environment, Ibai remarks that, “the When he has a gift, the gift of liking people, of being funny and genuinely funny. I think it will be closely related to the world of streaming and with the world of sport in the face of what is to come. Everything is going to revolve around the important sporting events in football, such as the Champions League, which has already happened, the next World Cup, or the next Copa América”.

As with Messi, Agüero, Duki or Bizarrap, Ibai recognizes that he has a special relationship with the Argentines and that he feels they are very similar to the Spanish: “The issue that I have with the Argentines is that they always received me very well, I always felt very loved both by the public and by athletes or artists. They always treated me with love and brutal respect. I feel very connected with many Argentines and I will surely end up going there.”
