We will also have Wesley Safadão, who is one of the greatest artists in Brazil. There’s a box of surprises we’ll make inside. The idea for the Fight Music Show came when I went to an event in Dubai, with a spectacular atmosphere. A real show – explained Mamá Brito, event organizer.

Do you have a chance? Understand how Whindersson Nunes decided to face Popó

Whindersson vs Popó is a fight expected since last year, but it was confirmed for January of this year. For the duel, the comedian started the diet to lose 6kg.

– They say that boxing is the art that most challenges the brain. Because you have to deal with very fast responses. In the blink of an eye, you have to know what to do. Whether to leave the face or not. Hit or defend. If you go up or go back a little. As in life. As in the dreams that cement my paths. It’s like in comedy, it’s speed I need. That’s it – commented Whindersson, in his biography, about boxing.

Challenging Popó, according to Whindersson, is a way of communicating with the fighting world.

– I choose my crazy things. (…) As my intention is always to communicate, this is a great way to communicate with the fighting world. They also have depression, they are afraid, they are hungry – he described in his book.
