xQc lays out conditions to fight El Rubius after Twitch star’s call out
Twitch powerhouse Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel has outlined his conditions for a boxing bout with content creator Ruben ‘El Rubius’ Gundersen after the latter challenged the former Overwatch pro.
Ever since Joe Weller and KSI fought in 2018 to settle their scores, the internet community has developed a surprising penchant for boxing matches.
Some of the biggest names from Twitch, YouTube, and TikTok – Deji, Jake Paul, Logan Paul, Bryce Hall, and more – have got into the ring and given their best at boxing.
With the trend showing no signs of slowing down, xQc has been challenged by El Rubius, with the Spanish Twitch star speaking at Ibai’s La Velada Del Año II event. Now, xQc has replied.
As El Rubius told xQc he was “waiting” for him, the Canadian replied to mock his boxing stance, before calling him a “funny guy” and claiming he’s “gonna fold him in half like a stack of papers”.
Thankfully, the jovial fighting talk did subside long enough for xQc to outline his actual conditions for a fight to take place. Like El Rubius, he stated that preparations should be limited and that it must take place in 2023.
“I’ll give you guys the response you want,” Lengyel said. “If we both agree to the same regiment of no training except for physical condition training, okay, I’ll fight him next year. But we gotta put some money on the line.”
