BoxingScene.com recently spoke to Latin Grammy winner and former amateur boxer Daddy Yankee about his new venture in television. He will serve as the commissioner for Mun2's new mma reality show, Combates America. The Puerto Rican said that boxing is his his first love but that he is very excited a bout this project and has been learning more about the sport.

"They knew of my past as a boxer and they wanted me to be involved as a guest but I told him no. I told him I wanted to be more involved and we decided I would be the commissioner. Right now I am a student of the sport and I am going to use all of my platforms, reach all of my fans, to feel passion about the sport and learn about Combate America and mma," stated Daddy Yankee.

According to various reports, an agreement is close to being reached for Miguel Cotto to move up in weight to challenge WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez on June 7th in New York. When asked for his opinion on the fight, the reggaeton superstar said he will definitely back his countryman but admitted it will be a tough task for Cotto.

"Oh my God, I haven't decided yet (who is going to win), even though I have to be faithful to my people," said a smiling Daddy Yankee who feels it is close to a 50-50 fight. "I have to be in Cotto's corner in that one but I think it is a tough, tough fight for him. Martinez is the real deal and (Cotto) knows that. He's a smart guy and he knows Martinez is the real deal," Daddy Yankee told BoxingScene.com.

Combates America debuts on February 23rd on Mun2 and features up and coming Latino fighters who are trying to make a name for themselves in the sport.

Take it from me, this is going to be the best show in the history of television.

Don't tell me that this fight is PPV. Queen Cotto is done and Martinez is not in his prime anymore.This fight is so boring!:firedevil

[QUOTE=killakali]depends how he comes back from the surgery. He could be shot[/QUOTE] I'm a fan of both guys, but its really unfair to say that the only way Cotto can win this, is with Martinez being shot. Martinez has a suspect chin and with a good gameplan, putting smart pressure on Martinez...
