This past Saturday, renowned salsa artist Christian Alicea performed "La Borinqueña," the national anthem of Puerto Rico, at the DAZN boxing event, headlined by the fight between Subriel Matias and Liam Paro for Matias's IBF super lightweight title. The event, broadcast by DAZN, reached a global audience, reflecting its vast subscriber base of over 20 million and presence in more than 230 countries.


Alicea, known for his hits "El Swing" and "Aroma," continues to make waves in the music industry. His latest single, "Es Un Secreto," which has been in the Billboard Top 10 Tropical chart for the past three consecutive weeks, showcases his innovative blend of traditional salsa rhythms and modern touches. This year, he has been nominated for Best Salsa Artist at the 2024 Heat Latin Music Awards and recently served as the inaugural host for the Marlins game.


Alicea's performance added a cultural touch to a night of intense boxing, celebrating Puerto Rican pride on an international stage.
