The 47-year-old half-Cuban American actor will voice rising sports streaming outlet DAZN‘s 40 Days, a new documentary series co-produced with LeBron James and Maverick Carter.
The plan is for him to recur as the series evolves into an umbrella for various behind-the-scenes sports series.
These types of follow docs are a sports media mainstays especially with the rise of digital video — similar to 24/7, Hard Knocks, and Tom Vs. Time.
But 40 Days, which is named for the eight Monday-to-Friday weeks of training for a boxing match, is aiming to give the series a bit more flair, with individual episodes and series being directed by different filmmakers.
The show premieres with a boxing focus on Tuesday night on DAZN, which recently launched in the U.S. after successfully bringing soccer, basketball and ring sports to fans in Europe and elsewhere.
The streaming service also operates in Canada, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Spain and Japan, with a launch in Brazil up next.

The first edition of 40 Days will spotlight the build-up to the May 4 matchup between Canelo Alvarezand Daniel Jacobs. A screening of the show is planned for May 2 in Las Vegas ahead of the fight.
